For Rose, who's 12 years old, things go bump in the night: are they real or a dream, benign or evil? After a halfhearted attempt to find a babysitter, Rachel and Paul go off to a party leaving Rose in her own care in a remote and rambling old house. She goes to bed after checking house and garden with her flashlight and not succeeding in finding her pet. When the front door bangs shut a couple of times and she hears footsteps, Rose grabs her hockey stick and hides in the closet. Someone is definitely in the house. Rose times her leap from the closet and the swing of her stick perfectly: pow! Has she saved herself? Or does fate have more in store?Written by
This is a short film from the Netherlands that is about a 12 year-old who is left all alone for the weekend. She insists that she's old enough to stay by herself, but naturally as time passes, each and every little sound makes her wonder if she's indeed alone--building to a rather striking ending.
While I did not love this film, the makers did a good job of setting the mood and the film was competently made. I also thought the acting was fine, though one reviewer felt it was poor. For what it was, it seemed okay to me. The only problem is that while everything seems quite competent, nothing really catches the viewer's fancy either. As a result, you are most likely left thinking this is a very adequate though not especially memorable film.
