Very strong film but I felt the narration and music overegged the cake and took away from the rawness and genuineness of the whole
11 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This short film is a 10 minute summary of a relationship ending as the two people drift apart gradually and then reach the point of the final rupture, which is typically rough when it comes at the end. It is a short film that is really well done in most ways but for me damaged itself with the overly reflective tone that it has – but since most of it is really good I will focus on that.

Through interweaving scenes we see this relationship end and it is very clear and engaging how the couple were, what causes the problems, how they got worse and ultimately how it all came to an end. In this regard it is really well done because all of the individual scenes are convincingly real and although we find ourselves thrown into the mix of all these things at once, they all work. They are also really well framed, shot and acted so the film feels very professional and has plenty of good looking shots.

The one downside for me is that I felt the heavy "wisdom" narration and the overly reflective tone provided by both this and the choice of music did rather overwhelm what felt genuine and honest about the film and instead turned it into something that was a bit too arty and a bit too much like a high-school student's poetry – sounds like deep wisdom to them at the time but to others just seems pat and obvious. Perhaps this is a bit harsh to say it this way, but for me the film did the content so well that it felt like it was overegging the cake to have this heavy, soul-searching tone – it took away the rawness, the realness, the genuineness.

I guess for most it will work and if you can directly relate then maybe the soft tone will help make it more moving and engaging, but for me it did so much of itself really well that I thought the tone with the music and narration really detracted more than it added. Still a very strong film though.
