Moody black and white short has power but no dialogue
12 August 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An 11-minute black and white short from cult British director Norman J. Warren, who would go on to forge a memorable career in the sex and horror industries. FRAGMENT sees a disturbed young woman suffering from depression after the break-up of a long-term relationship.

The film sees her wandering through a wintry landscape which reflects her internal mood. The locations are industrial and remarkably bleak, a bleakness achieved through some decent camera-work. It's an evocative mood piece with no dialogue and the main actress, Maureen Roche, conveys her feelings through her expressions alone. Actor Simon Brent, who would later star in Warren's sex drama LOVING FEELING, has a cameo as a man she meets in the street.

FRAGMENT has quite an obvious ending but I thought it was relatively powerful given the short running time. The final shot, of a busy road from behind a wire mesh fence, is quite arty and depicts a sense of separation, of life going on despite the personal problems of the individual.
