One day, all the windows in the City disappeared... Then the rain started... No matter what people tried, nothing could stop the water. Soon, disease spread, robbing people's abilities to speak; the endless rain killing all other forms of communication with its acidic torrent. This was a time when dialogue became a new challenge. When everything we knew had to be reinvented. This was also a time, in the midst of a chaotic, decaying environment, when a man tried to cope with the loss of his former lover. Written by
I have seen this film in September in Toronto with my girlfriend and I thought I needed to spread the word on its qualities (especially since short films often have a tough time to get a buzz going). What amazed me was the film's ambitious setting and the way it was playing with images to deal with a world where communication has died. As mentioned I saw it with my girlfriend and for once we agreed totally (something that happens so rarely, that I need to mentioned it). She mentioned me that it reminded her of Beaudelaire... I personally liked the dark fantasy element which I thought is lacking in most fantastic films aiming cheaply this days to retro or teenage oriented elements. All in all it made us feel adult, provoked thoughts and somewhere along the way emotions were felt. All that and more made it a winner in our book. I do not know if it played anywhere else... but if it does I am happy for its makers.
