Disappointing
19 September 2008 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This short is about two high school friends, who are both in the cross country team, getting attracted to each other.

"Running Without Sound" is a low budget production. It does not have enough plot even to fill 13 minutes. The mutual attraction could be explained and developed better, in order to make it more convincing. The bedroom staring scene, though shows their hesitation and anxiety, is a little too long. Though it is refreshing to include a dumb character in a short, I think the subject is not so well handled. Maybe the friends could be shown to be learning sign language to show support? Overall, I think "Running Without Sound" is a disappointing short.
