Interesting but a little arty

A wasp exterminator travels to a large stately home to deal with a wasp infestation problem. However when he arrives he is greeted by a dysfunctional, hate filled family that attacks each other with spite and hurtful remarks. He reassesses his feelings towards the wasps that only sting in self defence.

Funded by European money this little short is clearly making a point about something but it is not concise enough to come away with the most general interpretation without guidance. The film is clearly showing us how people can be crueller and hurt more than even a wasp's sting, and should therefore be treated with more control and stricter measures than those pests.

How we are supposed to take this I'm unsure. The family in the film are so extreme that one would find it very easy to make this conclusion but perhaps only in this case and not wider. The delivery of the film is good and has a certain style to it that catches the eye well but I found the characters too extreme to relate to in my own life.

Overall a worthy little film that is interesting if a little straightforward message wise. Worth watching once but may be a little too arty or pretentious for some.
