Storyline

A singer struggles to dance well in rehearsal with her band. A power outage leaves her alone in the studio, reviewing her life, when a mysterious woman appears through the mirror and gives her a pair of Red Shoes. The cursed shoes dance beautifully, but endlessly. The singer is drawn irresistibly into the fey world beyond the mirror, where she must redeem three magic symbols from the mysterious woman in order to obtain release from the cursed shoes. Written by Karen Newcombe <kln@sirius.com>

If you "let the weirdness in" you will love this short film!
11 July 2003 | by kundavegaSee all my reviews

Probably one of the most quirky and campy videos I have ever seen. Full of beautiful imagery and strange humour. Kate is brilliant in her weirdness! I could watch this over and over and never get bored. Kind of reminds me of a Harlan Ellison comic or story come to life in beautiful color. Kate's acting ability is not Oscar worthy, but it works really well here. Miranda Richardson is phenomenal as is Lindsey Kemp. Aside from all of the film aspects, we cannot forget the incredible music where Kate's genius shines like a million suns. Definite two thumbs up and if you are a Kate fan you simply must own it :)
