First of all, Luke Treadaway brought me here, otherwise I would
probably never heard about the film or watch it. Too bad he's in it for
like four or five scenes that at my view didn't add nothing to the
already confusing story. Still love you, man!
This is what I've got from watching this short film. "God's Wounds"
tells us a strange story about a happy rural community that has its
peace broken after the arrival of an animal rights groups named God's
Wounds that threats the local workers of a animal testing facility,
accusing them of animal cruelty. In between the protests and the
ferocious fight back led by one the angry workers, there's some moments
involving a new girl in town (Emily Beecham) and her talks with the
young people from the place, things unclear to me. And there's
something wrong with the strawberries, also unclear to me.
Soundtrack is great, the weirdness of "God's Wounds" and it's thematic
of people who only have terrible jobs to work on having to deal with
protesters and threats is part of the appeal of it. Something tells me
that is some sort of 'film test' where the director filmed only those
15 minutes of film trying to impress investors into making it into a
larger project, that got lost in the way. And there's so much that
could be made here since it holds our attention and excitement for a
while then it suddenly ends with no conclusions. A little confusing but
