      The Deserter is a 2004 historical comedy film by American comedian/writer/director/actor Eric Bruno Borgman. Borgman wrote, directed and stars in the film. It is the story of a British drummer, station in America during the time of the American Revolution in the late 1700’s. Out on patrol with his unit, he drops his canteen into

      the river whilst attempting to fill it up. It is taken away by the current, and he races after it intent on getting it back. This sets in motion a series of hilarious events. Spotted chasing his canteen it is assumed he is trying to desert, and a squad of some British soldiers are sent ...

      • after him to execute him for being a deserter.

        I found the film immensely enjoyable, evoking many different kinds of emotions in me. It was hilarious, but at the same time rather poignant. There were tense moments and feel-good moments. Borgman, wears his comedy ties very much on his sleeve, as this is directly influenced by

        the silent comedies of the 1920’s.

        As a film-maker and actor Borgman is emerging as a great young talent and judging by this film it won’t be long before he becomes a mainstream star. Though I have a feeling he may be content to just sit on the fringes of the mainstream and continue to produce gems like this.
