Best of British
25 December 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this short as part of the Palm Springs short film programme this year and can't wait to see what David Leon and Marcus Mcsweeney do next. It was provocative, challenging and intense. The non-linear cutting style really added to the tension and kept me guessing to the end.

Based on a true story, the chilling tale feels incredibly real and is beautifully acted. Eddie Marsan is always great, I am a big fan and Geoff Bell acts with such force and menace you can't help but feel sorry for the situation the characters find themselves in.

In short a brilliant film, one of the best and unique shorts I've ever seen. Check it out.
