Cryptic.
20 February 2012 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

Liam Cunningham and David Wilmot, both of whom appear in director John Michael McDonagh's The Guard, appear in this cryptic little 11-minute short. Cunningham plays a sombre man haunted by ghosts whose presence in his home ultimately bring about his demise. It's short on plot and heavy on atmosphere, but it's a little impenetrable to be honest. Cunningham, who has one of those faces that seem vaguely familiar but elusively difficult to attach to anything you've seen, gives a decent performance, and there are some interesting minor characters, one of which is a local police officer who might well be a blueprint for The Guard's Gerry Boyle.
