Both poignant and humorous
17 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Karman Line is a rare delight-- a film both truly poignant and humorous. A treasure of a short film, it uses magical realism to gracefully navigate the issue of losing a family member. The performances are universally excellent, and support a compelling story. I had the privilege of seeing The Karman Line at South by Southwest film festival in March, 2014. Out of several dozen superb short films (and I believe over 1,300 submissions), it was one of the best. The story and pacing were compelling, it did not lag for a moment or succumb to the two common weaknesses of even the strongest short films: the "plot twist/joke ending" or "random slice of life trail off." Instead, the film had narrative integrity and ended with the same grace with which it began. The gently evolving character development and pacing were satisfying, and made me feel like I had seen a good feature length film. It was quirky without being pretentious, emotional without being melodramatic. I am not usually a fan of magical realism, but the heightened reality that shines through this film is why we make the enormous effort to make good film, in any genre. As a filmmaker and actor this is exactly the sort of team I would love to work with. This is a film with heart. See it.
