Very funny, but very dark!
11 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Very funny, but very dark! I saw this little gem at an industry screening and at the outset thought that it might be a straight comedy but it gets darker and darker - which I loved. The little girl who plays Meg the arsonist is very good - haven't seen her in anything before - as are the supporting actors. Could have been a little tighter in the middle but that's a minor criticism. It was directed by Ian Barnes who was Oscar nominated for his short WISH143 so it'll be interesting to see how this film does on the festival circuit. Matchhead is darker than WISH143 (which was pretty dark itself) so it might play to a different audience. Not sure how the festivals for children will take it as there is mild swearing but it deserves to be shown in those festivals just for the performance of the little girl herself.
