This short is everything that a short film should be!
I've seen this short film at several festivals now, and I can't believe that the director hasn't been snapped up yet! This short is everything that a short film should be! It delves into the story of Eve for just the right amount of time at a pivotal moment in her life. The editing is finely tuned, there are no unnecessary shots. The director has a lean style of telling the story that draws you in and keeps you on your toes. The pace of the edits and the beats of the soundtrack is quite exhillerating to watch. In many ways the style is of a high quality commercial, but the thing that makes this film different is the tight Aristotilian script. The reversals of the story come in all the right places, but at the same time you can allow it to work on you without it being predictable. The mood is dark and paranoid with echoes of similar anti- corporate films such as Falling Down and Aliens.It just has everything; great script, sense of style, good performances and special effects. I really enjoyed this short swift slap in the face. Surely the talents of it's outstanding director Ciaran Foy will be recognised?
