Amusing Short Film
3 August 2005 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

A very amusing short film that's set up when the parents of a teenager receive a note saying: I can no longer tolerate you as parents so have decided to become a badger

What makes MARTIN a stand out short is the crackling dialogue . Upon reading the note the father exclaims " I can no longer tolerate you as parents so have decided to become a badger . If he'd wrote that he'd decided to become a cadger that would have made more sense " We also hear lines like " If he has become a badger he might be useful for once , just think of the paint brushes we can make out of his bristles " . Lines like this point out that the Celts have the greatest sense of humour in the world . Also watch out for the character who looks as though he's been kidnapped from 28 DAYS LATER

Despite its length ( Or should that be lack of length ? ) MARTIN is enjoyable . No offence to director Imogen Murphy who is at least very competent but most of the credit lies at the feet of writer Geoff Everson
