Something refreshing...
9 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

...So fancy seeing something with wit, humour, and doesn't take itself seriously?? (compared to many British shorts I've seen!). This really was a refreshing watch! When you hear the words 'British Film' your mind may conjure up all sorts of images of over dramatic styling OR the odd football fan with a broken glass. Well not in this film, This offers a rather magical look on at a timeless Britain, From the characters to the cockney accents of the street walkers rolling around the back alleys of a backwards town.

I caught this short art piece at a street festival in London this summer (2008) and I have to say, took me by surprise! - From the moment the narrative is introduced by the British Artist 'Andrew Logan' you are sucked in! - the Film seems to carry a raw elegance along with an all round unique approach to independent film making! What with more British tabloid celebrities than you can shake a stick at (very clever and humorous casting considering the social messages the film offers)- The whole film seems to have a very smart tongue in cheek approach to many sociological points, from Vanity, meat eating, fur wearing and simple sociological hierarchy.

I have seen this short well over 10 times since then and every time i manage to pick up on another level of the screen writers mind. Bravo.

Mike
