Quotes

[first lines]
Ben: When I close my eyes at night, there is only darkness. When I open my eyes in the morning, there is only this. Our world is not powered by oil, or money, or dreams, or God. Our world is run on trust. We see the universe as a machine. Everything in the right place. Gears forever rotating. Our world eternal. Fixed. Like the sun. Trains and people and clocks will be on time. Time marches forward, never backwards, never standing still. The son buries the father, grows old and his son ...

An impressive (and successful) proof of concept – which goes beyond the usual limitations of such shorts, despite still having them
7 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is something that I am not a fan of generally – short films being made as proof of concept; but it is something that Sundays has shown can be a great thing to do, and can pay off. This short film was funded by Kickstarter, took 5 years to complete and release, and just a few days ago was subject to a bidding war between various studios trying to get hold of the film to develop into a feature on the basis of this short. Knowing this, part of me does shudder because it probably means that we will be subjected to more and more special-effects shots which are padded out to be short films, but are really nothing of the sort. This is not to say that this is what Sundays is, but for sure it is important to know that narrative content is not really this films strongest point.

In the short we see Mexico City destroyed by solar activity; it is an opening that contains some striking and impressive images – not "for a short film", but just generally it is very well done and looks great. From here we join the lead character in a future struggling with its own fragility and yet tightly controlled and regulated. The lead character starts to question his understanding of what reality is following some experiences, and we join him on a very brief justification for this mindset. It doesn't offer answers, and it is rather disappointing in regard to the delivery of something that you can take away, but it is very good at drawing in the viewer and impressing with the technical side. I say this like it is not enough, but to be fair to the film, its aim was proof of concept and that is what it delivers, and it delivered it successfully as we see by the fact that it has been picked up.

I do wish it had been able to be more contained than it was, and deliver something on its own, as well as suggesting and offering much more; but I can forgive it because it is very impressive in its delivery, and it does offer an interesting sci-fi with themes of reality and human identity to be explored. How well it will do that as a narrative is very difficult to judge from this short film – because there is really very little narrative here to assess, so time will have to tell on that one. Will be interesting to look out for it in the future to see what they manage to do with such a promising and impressive base; and one can forgive the short film for what it doesn't do since it really never set out to be a complete product, and, as a proof of concept, it does put in more effort and detail than some I've seen, and it does draw the viewer in.
