This 11 minute offering does not arouse any curiosity or provoke any response in the viewer, except boredom. It has no personality, no flavour, no vibe, no attitude. The material is unintrusive, horizontal and lethargic. At no point in the story at all was I invited to engage with the characters. Everything that is wrong with a short film is here in this project. The 35 year old D.W. Griffith does not build up a relationship between his audience and his characters. The story is detached, aloof and distant. There is no intimacy in the film whatsoever, alienating audiences in their seats. It needs interplay between characters, story and audience.
