Rhythmically enchanting
29 August 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film has a plot, but it only comes together at the very end and I think you'll find it is so coincidental and tidy that you'll probably just be annoyed by it if I were to tell it to you here and now. However, if you take the time to watch this delightful little short you'll probably find that, by the time you reach the tidy ending, you've been won over by the delivery of this film more to the point where you can forgive it.

The majority of the film follows six characters over two very short scenes each. They never speak but a gentle voiced narrator tells us what they are thinking. It is engaging on this level and rather charming, with a nice rhythm to it that flows in a slight but enjoyable fashion. The direction matches this, with well framed but simple shots, bright simple colours and good performances drawn from the cast to match well with the expressed thoughts their characters are having. Of course the ending is a bit of a problem and none of the substance holds in place but this doesn't matter so much because it is enchanting and enjoyable enough to watch without that mattering too much. Hard to explain but rather a sweet little film with well-written narration and well worth taking a look at if you get the chance.
