Storyline

Simon is a new tenant who likes to go out. He lives in an apartment below Mrs Henley who likes to read, watch TV and mostly stay in. Simon arrives back in his old car in the early hours, playing hip hop and allowing the door of his flat to bang shut. Mrs Henley and her quiet neighbors are upset, feeling Simon to be not only inconsiderate but also not their 'sort'. Simon knows this and also knows his movements are being closely monitored. Written by Daylight Films [gb]

Nicely British look at lack of community
20 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Unlike most of the characters in this short film, I do not live alone, but I do have a neighbour whose car is an irritant and generally he is not really considerate of others in the row of houses. However writing that here is about as far as I have ever taken the issue, preferring instead not to raise the issue but stay back from it and carry on with my life. That is the theme for the majority of this film, where very few words are actually spoken but instead the character silently tut and mutter about the young neighbour they perceive as a nuisance. For the majority of the film I recognized myself in these characters – and I think for most of the people it will be this way.

The conclusion to the film seems like a jump from silent disapproval to something much more deliberate, even if it is rooted essentially in the same themes of isolation, lack of community and lack of empathy. It is perhaps a bit heavy in how obviously it delivers its point, but it is a point well made and the silent 'to-camera' delivery by the cast make it pretty effective. It is perhaps ultimately not as clever as some would have you believe, but it is effective in portraying a total lack of community and isolation – with people neither reaching out to others, or confronting their anti-social behaviour; ultimately leading to a dark example of a lack of community or society within the block of flats.
