The Footstep Man looks at the lines between art and reality, and the effect that each has upon the other.
26 March 2000 | by whitikauSee all my reviews

This is a film about film-making, with the film-within-the-film being very important to the plot of the film itself.

The movie itself - The Footstep Man - looks at the realisations and personal growth of the main character - Sam (actor: Stephen Grives) - as he works on the film. He and the director of the film - Vida (actor - Rosey Jones) - have differing views as to how the film should proceed, with each being spurred on by the central character in the film - Mirielle (actor - Jennifer Ward-Lealand). Vida and Sam are exploring personal tragedies through the film, and as the filming progresses, the hardships of Mirielle are reflected in the hardships of Sam.

I watched this movie as part of a film studies course and enjoyed it. The Footstep Man looks at the lines between art and life, and how one can affect the other through personal attachments and private fears.
