One of the best shorts I have ever seen!
29 April 2001 | by (Miami & Sao Paulo, BR) – See all my reviews

EARLY FROST (the English title & literal translation) is simply the best short film I have ever seen: humorous, dramatic, gay, straight,.... Simply the best. At over 15 minutes length, the film has enough time to develop themes most full length features don't, through its ingenious insinuations. A fable, and uproarious black comedy, the film deals with homophobia and family disfunction through the relationship of a young girl and her pet rabbit.

When the rabbit shows homosexual inclinations, the parents of the girls take very extreme measures which transform the girl's life. At the same time, the girl (and her parents) come in contact with the the family's up-to-then ignored gay neighbors in this upper middle-class Parisian suburb. The impacting life-long consequences of these developments are, in a word, unique. The "natural" similarity between the sexual orientation and other characteristics of humans and pet animals has never been so well explored, and focused. A milestone short-film; a true achievement.
