Bizarre but worthwhile short film

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

Hard faced experienced journalist Tamara (Sally Bretton) accompanies novice reporter Niall (Thomas Nelstrop) to interview recently bereaved mother Mrs. Wright (April Nicholson) so their paper can run a tribute piece on her son. Niall's a bit nervous and unsure how to conduct himself in the presence of Mrs. Wright. But when he introduces himself at the front door, she warmly welcomes him in...but grief appears to have had a funny effect on her mind frame and she may see Niall as something other than the interviewer he came round to be.

I watch a shamefully few amount of short films. These are the projects that springboard new talents and potential future mega movie makers into stardom, if they gain the right acclaim for the work they have done. This short was actually recommended to me by the director himself, well, not so much recommended as suggested (I'm sure he's a modest guy!) For the sake of thirteen minutes it wasn't too much of a slog to sit through, and the added bonuses made it all the more better.

This is a darkly comic tale, where most of the humour comes from the awkward and uncomfortable situation Nelstrop finds himself in with a mentally unstable woman, with the air of tragedy and gloom always hanging over. We as the viewers feel it ourselves, and this makes this short and sweet effort all the more involving. Good performances from Nelstrop and Nicholson are an added bonus, but the star of the show is Bretton, with her cold, cynical b!tch act and her tacturn approach to the more easy going Halstrop, although you're not really sure if she's really this way or she has just become frustrated with him.

I doubt a short film would leave that much of an impression on me, but for the few I see I'm glad I saw this one. ****
