Destiny Not Semantics

BELLY BUTTON revolves around several characters . There's Mary who's an old woman sitting on a park bench , Parveen who's been dumped by her boyfriend though gawd knows why since she's so pretty , Martin a middle aged man who smokes too much , Carl who's something of klutz who wonders why he doesn't have a girlfriend and a couple of other protagonists

I have to be honest and say that for most of the ten minute running time of BELLY BUTTON I had no idea where it was heading or if it was even heading anywhere . Added to this we have a voice over from a narrator who's delivery reminded me of the nuclear holocaust docudrama THREADS . Thankfully we're not told about the effects of radiation on the body but the narrator tells us what is going on in the minds of the characters who more often than not wonder where swear words come from . Thankfully everything makes sense when fate brings the character threads together and we find out what a selfish bitch Parveen is . No doubt he's best rid of her

And can I just say that it's refreshing to see a short film featuring a couple of familiar faces . Obviously the narrative doesn't require anything more from the actors to pull faces but it's rare to see a short film where you'll say " Oh they were in ... "
