Could be anywhere...
11 November 2012 | by (Salisbury, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't usually watch film shorts but caught this 25 min one from director Daniel Mulloy, late on Film 4.

Starring Arta Dobroshi, who as the young Bosnian woman who sees a pickpocketing and subsequent threat with a knife at a crowded bus-stop, this scenario could happen to any one of us, in any town or city, anywhere. The fact that it's set in London and features an array of ethnic groups, either as main characters or bystanders, is perhaps irrelevant, or not....

Truly filmed on location and on a budget, the pickpocketer, who's a black Londoner (Daniel Kaluuya) follows the woman onto her bus, they get chatting and strike up some sort of friendship. What happens when they get back to her flat in a house does seem a little odd, considering how the story started, but there is an almost human urgency of bonding that may portray the nomadic and transience of people within a large, modern cosmopolitan city, or again, not. I'm veering on the side of caution, so as to not add a spoiler.

No explanation is offered, or perhaps, needed. The story is simple, yet deals with complex issues, through sparse dialogue (& tiny subtitles, when she speaks Bosnian). There's no great scope for flamboyant acting here but both leads are fine. It does make you think after, which is good and perhaps rare, but by the morning, it will probably have been forgotten by most.
