Beautifully shot and powerfully acted
29 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to get to watch a copy of "Re-en-act-ment", the latest release from director Kevin Lucero Less. It was a stunning comprehensive 28 minute short. Shot in black and white, it is the story of a mother and son who are involved in their own detective work to find out what happened to their daughter/sister. There was a kidnapping, the cops couldn't help, and they were left to cope with her disappearance on their own, with many unanswered questions. Although the missing girl is featured in flashback, the movie is a 2 person character study with director Kevin Lucero Less playing the son and Linda Cieslik playing mother. These 2 light up the screen with explicitly real performances. With little dialogue, and lots of implications, they 2 tell a story which far exceeds the screen time the short provides it. It left me wishing that this was a full feature. I loved how the movie didn't spell out what happened, it leaves its viewer drawing many answers themselves. It is a challenging film, and I mean that in the best way possible. Director and star Kevin Lucero Less has a firm grasp on film, and how it is made. This was a truly wonderful short that deserves to be seen by many.
