Heffernan is gold
6 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Santa Croce is a great display of skill and talent from Gavin Heffernan. I think shorts are always difficult to get right and this director has chosen the appropriate level of minimalism and action to fit his story of a lost and broken family rediscovering faith.

I would, however, like to see this up-and-coming director/writer take some big risks with his next project. As a preference to this writer, think more David Lynch and less Cameron Crowe. I suppose that makes Heffernan the next Cronenberg -- a suitable title for a new Canadian talent.

Look out for this new Director.
