A getaway driver waits outside during a bank robbery. Then, a fly shows up and ruins everything.

Filmmaker Olly Williams offers a fast-paced, funny gunshot of a short film, as a getaway driver waits anxiously for his crew to get out of a bank robbery.

All the driver can do is wait during the three tense minutes of the robbery — but a tiny insect adversary turns it into the most anxious, crazy-making minutes of his life.

As he waits in the car, the tiny fly buzzes and enrages the already nervous getaway driver, who tries to take his frustrations out on the fly.

But though the fly is small, it manages to keep the upper hand for some time — driving his enemy mad, to hilariously slapstick effect.

Economical, brisk and blessed with a clever lead performance heavy on physical comedy, “The Fly” is a small-screen shot of adrenaline — whose ending punchline doesn’t need words to land a real punch.

He goes ballistic at 3:40…
