Length Doesn't Matter!
9 April 1999 | by (Whitehall, PA) – See all my reviews

This short British film (about 20 minutes or so!) starts off as the charming story of a mute traveling entertainer who endears himself to the citizens of a small town he's passing through, and develops a sinister, devilishly clever twist. Alan Badel (who I'd previously seen and enjoyed as the unctuous, foot-fetishist villain in ARABESQUE) gets a nifty showcase for his versatility, and the music of Muir Matheson adds greatly to the atmosphere. This packs more charm, characterization, and suspense into its short length than many feature-length films I've seen.
