Films in five seconds

From Pretty Woman to Bridget Jones's Diary, these are the films that we have snuggled up under a blanket to watch and could recite word-for-word. But can you imagine them whittled down to just five seconds?

In a new book titled Film in Five Seconds, 150 of our favourite films have been stripped down, condensed and meticulously organised into pictograms. The artworks-cum-graphs are made up of icons and arrows that are arranged in clever and sometimes hilarious ways.

It's the second book from design and advertising firm H-57, following the viral success of their first book Life in Five Seconds: Over 200 Stories For Those With No Time to Waste.

Here is an excerpt of the chick flick and rom-com infographics their latest book offers, which doubles up as a 'guess the film' game. It's the most efficient movie marathon we've ever seen...
