Short Time, High Impact
23 March 2008 | by (Philadelphia, Pa.) – See all my reviews

I'm fortunate enough to get to see short films through a program on public television called "The Short List" which seasonally features selected short films from around the world.

Wow! What a dramatic impact in such a short time. In the space of about 10 minutes this film builds to a point of high suspense. Also, inside of that time, we are introduced to man, given insight into his character, shown the wide variety of emotions that pass through him -- all without a word from the actor. The other major character in the film her own triumph in acting on two levels: someone who is acting as though she is acting.

Mysteriously, as of this writing more than half of the raters have given this film the supreme rating of 10, but its overall IMDb rating hovers around 4.0. Huh???!

This is a great little film. Its makers should proud and you should be so lucky as to see it.
