Wow
7 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a spectacular short film I saw at Fantasia last week. It packs so much into in such a short time that I was completely floored. First, it starts off like a Japanese horror film. Then becomes the matrix, but has a wicked twist. The actor was there at the screening. He only has one leg and talked about filming with wires and filming all the stunts. I was most fascinated to hear how they shot some of it with the actors acting in slow motion, with the intention of speeding it up in editing. The actor said he couldn't wait to work with the director again, and I can't wait for that to happen either. I know this won the audience award at the festival and think it was really well deserved. Probably one of the most effective short films I've ever seen (and have seen a lot.) The lead girl was also incredible, and overall it was a really, really well made short film.
