Brickfilms Wiki

What if...? (German: Was wäre wenn...?) is a 2007 comedy brickfilm by "Holgor". It follows a man who must run to meet his girlfriend on time.[1] It was created for Steinerei 2007 and tied with Schatzsuche in Mormala by JuKuWe Xanten for third place in the audience choice.[2][3] The English version was entered into The TTC Contest.[4]


A man receives a phone call from his girlfriend, who is angry that he is still at home as he is due to meet her at the cinema by 18:00. The man decides on the fastest route and leaves at 17:55. He runs along the route but encounters multiple distractions along the way. He reaches the cinema at 18:03, and his girlfriend breaks up with him for always being too late.

The man imagines what would have happened if he did make it. This time, he leaves earlier and doesn't get distracted along the way. He arrives at 17:58, but sees his girlfriend with someone else. She anticipates the man's typical late arrival, which will give her a reason to dump him. The man leaves and heads to a bus stop, dejected. A friend notices him and asks to go get coffee with him. She remarks that if he had been a little later, then she would have been gone.[1]
