Frog...a slice of life under the microscope.
9 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

Both fresh and passionate, quirky and real.

Tiger Darrow exudes Star Quality in her portrayal of a contemplative teenager who is confronted with realities that seem to unfold at a startlingly unforgiving pace as she takes the viewer from laughter to tears, and finally to acceptance.

Each character in this short film invites both questions and insights that are never quite resolved by the audience, making the conclusion particularly subject to interpretation.

An impressive soundtrack adds greatly to the coaster of emotions Samantha Mask (Darrow) rides, as do some singularly inventive camera shots.(witness the three closed doors)

Alternately funny and heart wrenching, this film was a joy to watch.

Hopefully this first time director/writer has more in store for us!
