Outstanding short
21 February 2003 | by (Bowling Green) – See all my reviews

Ramsay sure knows how to make the most of 18 minutes. This, her second short film, is available along with two others on Criterion's "Ratcatcher" DVD.

The plot is very simple, but the story is told in such an unexpected and refreshing manner you just can't wait to see what happens next. Brilliant editing and unexplained scene changes which only become clear later.

Particularly charming is the filmmaker's approach to working with children. Only completely innocent and natural shots are used. A scene here where a group of boys are running about in underwear and eventually skinny-dipping seems more like home movies than a deliberate scene in a film.

Ramsay is definitely a director to keep an eye on and it's quite nice to be able to collect her work right from the beginning, including these early shorts.
