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 saw this at the FCMM festival in Montreal, and I was really impressed by the poetic atmosphere and beautiful story. The photography, music and sets were amazing, and it seemed like a strange fairy tale the way the voice over told the history of what was happening. Overall I think this is one of the most impressive short films I saw coming from Quebec, and I would recommend it to any fans of artistic films, or strange fantasy movies. Perhaps horror movie fans won't like this, so despite the dark story, it is more of a romance or film for fans of Tarkovsky or David Lynch's films than typical horror movies.
I can't wait to see what these director's do next. This is one of the best short films I have seen.
