Exquisitely shot, great lead actress, just a little flimsy
12 April 2007 | by (Fredrikstad, Norway) – See all my reviews

I just watched this short on Joost and was stuck immediately by its similarities to "Lost in Translation". There are great moments, where nothing is said, we're just watching the lead actress and its all written on her face - How she's feeling, what she's thinking.

The cinematography in this short is absolutely first rate any time the camera is still. The only issues I had were with the hand-held stuff, which was just so close to the actors that its was a bit "bobby".

The lead actress in this film is absolutely extraordinarily talented. She reminded me quite a bit of Scarlett Johanssen. I would definitely tip her for great things (And I've predicted a few indie breakouts before :)) This short is definitely worth watching. I'd recommend it. I just thought that, in the end, the plot kind of petered out a bit. But otherwise, for the sheer gorgeousness of the images, its well worth it.
