This was one of the short film entered into the orange Short Film Award 2002 and was my least favourite. The plot is very basic and has nowhere meaningful to go. I felt that it should be a metaphor for something but this wasn't clear. The imagination behind the script is clear and undeniable but it left out detail. The lack of detail makes it a too-simple tale of beauty in a grey world, but I didn't feel like I knew the character well enough.
I know this is a tall order in 5 minutes, but that is the challenge of a short film! The actress in the lead is OK but has little to do except change. The actual transformation is well done and shows that the visual imagery was the most important element to the makers.
Overall this is worth watching once to see, but really it is a good idea that fails to be transformed into a good little short.
