Storyline

Miguel, a Civil Engineer and workaholic, goes to work on Christmas day as he does every day of the week. But this Christmas day will be unlike any other. An accident lands Miguel alone and stranded inside a construction hole on the building site. With no signal on his mobile and nobody around Miguel looks inside his briefcase hoping to find something, anything that might help get him out of his hole. In his briefcase he finds a strange letter, a letter that leaves him with one burning ambition - get home. Written by Tommy Draper

digging out a gem
5 July 2007 | by (derbyshire england) – See all my reviews

The Hole is a simple yet brilliant short movie that's packed with more emotion and heart than is found in most full length movies.

The Scrooge-like tale of a workaholic finding what is important is one that has been done many times but here it feels fresh. Miguel Gaudencio directs this feature with passion and skilfully avoids using clichéd imagery normally associated with stories of Christmas. The central performance from Albano Jeronimo is an impressive mix showing extreme strength and hardness but turning it around for the audience to fall in love with his character when his vulnerable side is on display.

Overall this movie gets under your skin and makes you smile as it reminds you of things that are important in life. This clearly is a movie from an upcoming talent and rare gem of a film, if you can find it then you should watch it. I'm looking forward to what this film making team are going to do next!
