Very interesting and with an emotional impact
16 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having been approached to watch A Fitting Tribute I was all for seeing it. Last night, after a hectic week I sat down to watch it, and it lived up to my expectations and more. A Fitting Tribute is a very interesting short, with a strong emotional impact.

What really struck me was the story. It was a very intriguing one to begin with, and stayed that way for the finished product. A Fitting Tribute is very touching in its subject matter and it makes us identify with it and the characters without forcing it.

Yet there is also room for a twist, which was a satisfying one, being clever while not being too predictable or giving the drama an uneven tone. A Fitting Tribute is beautifully made as well, has a dynamic and unobtrusive score, is directed with care and is very well acted with April Nicholson coming off best.

All in all, I really liked this, I had been anticipating it to be good having watched the wonderful Amelia and Michael previously and from the plot summary, and I wasn't disappointed. 9/10 Bethany Cox
