Amazing short film!
28 May 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught "Flying" in a short film collection, wedged between a documentary about selling fireworks for the 4th of July and a dumb film about a girl who trades e-mails with Prince William, and I must say, this film was by far the best film in the entire lot.

A man in a business suit arrives at an airport terminal to find it almost completely empty, save from the flight attendant. He's later joined by a quiet, older gentleman, and the two start up a conversation while waiting for their flight to get ready. The business man states begins to realize that he doesn't know why he's here or where the planes goes, and slowly his past begins to creep up on him through flashbacks. He had a family, a wife and a son, and he had cancer. They couldn't treat it. He was going to die. Maybe he's already dead...

The visual style is amazing. The scenes in the airport are given a deep blue look which feels humble. In contrast, the flashback scenes are bright with greens and browns, and give a sense of two separate worlds, which they very well maybe. That's all up to your opinion on what's actually going on, and I've heard several interpretations.

The sound and camera work is flawless, and the acting, how little there actually is, is great. I really just can't say enough about this 12-minute piece. 9/10!
