Storyline

A woman takes a shortcut and is followed by a stranger. She is scared and is thinking whether she should run or not. Out of the blue, she decides to turn around and she sees nothing but a cell phone on the floor. In flashback, we see the stranger embarrassed for the reaction of the woman. He is aware that she believes that he might be a rapist following her, and he decides to call his mother to talk loudly on the phone and calm down the woman. However, something happens and the stranger vanishes. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Actaeon Films has put their short subjects online and this example is an interesting one. At two and a half minutes, it doesn't tell a story, but it qualifies as an amusing anecdote, It also is one of the few cases in which a piece is clearly and properly told in voice-over, since the humor comes from the contrasting thoughts of the two characters: a young woman taking a shortcut through a pedestrian tunnel late at night and the man who is behind her, just out of sight.

Actaeon's catalogue is a short one at the moment and seems to be student films -- as are so many shorts these days. This piece has very good camera-work -- overly dramatic perhaps, but certainly not inappropriate -- actors competent to the simple movements and emotions and editors with a good sense of pacing. What they seem to lack here is a writer who can structure a story, and so need to depend on the impact of individual incident rather than character. Ah, well. So many Hollywood movies seem to lack that, even with budgets in the hundreds of millions of dollars. At least the incident here is a believable one.
