poorly acted caricatures
16 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was able to see "After the Snow" at the Florida Film Festival. "After the Snow" is poorly acted, pointless, and ghastly for the sake of being ghastly. The film follows a pregnant woman who confronts her attacker at his house. There is no build-up, character development, or underlying message. The director's intent was purely to shock an audience with a thinly construed scenario. The pregnant woman wants revenge and the rapist is deprived. There was a huge hazard of caricature here, and for a film that subsists on a sustained dialogue between two people, poorly acted caricatures ruined the film.

The cinematography is the all-too-familiar hand-held digital look, color corrected to look bleak and cold. We get it.

The editing style and production value are both lazy. It felt like an undergraduate school exercise.

The Jury at the Florida Film Festival should be ashamed to award this film the Special Jury Prize. There were dozens of other short films more deserving of the award.
