Belly Button is in many ways the perfect short film; Well-written characters, sensitive performances (especially by Sharon Small and Don Gillet), great locations, beautifully photographed and pulled off with great style in ten minutes. You're left caring about the characters and it immediately invites a re-watch. The key here though is the tight and witty script and the deftness with which its interweaving threads are realized by writer/director David Hewitt, who clearly has a masterful touch with both the performances and the camera. The narrator's unique, dry timbre also seems to fit perfectly with the overall feel of this mature, and enchanting little film. Looking out for future projects by this director.
