Roman Polanski doesn't try. He sets the standard. His film Death and the Maiden is one of the finest examples of minimalistic film-making in history.
It only features three characters. There's only one location, and one song, some rope and duct tape. And even though nobody goes anywhere, and there's no action, Polanski still managed to create one hell of a roller coaster ride.
Less, really is more.
