Original, brilliant and shocking - a masterpiece
9 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is a fantastic short film which engages the viewer from start to finish. It is one of the most original short films i have ever seen. it has shock value, brilliant mise-en-scene and is a showcase for the abundant talents of Noah Taylor. No wonder it showed at Sundance.
