PREDICTABLY DEPRESSING SHORT FILM
16 January 2003 | by carltonmanSee all my reviews

Yet another dark, depressing short British Film. I don't think I've ever watched a short film, or a British feature in years, that hasn't either been way too throwaway, or too serious for its own good, and 'Daddy's Girl' firmly falls into the latter category. Could anything be more depressing than sitting through ten minutes of watching a little girl standing alone outside in the pouring rain, in a downtrodden council estate, outside the run-down local pub that her alcoholic father is sitting getting drunk inside? What is even more depressing is that distributors seem to have an unending appetite for churning out these predictable, formulaic and deeply patronising short films, and that British films seem to only ever be like 'Daddy's Girl' or rags-to riches stories like the deeply over-rated 'Full Monty' or 'Billy Elliot', or gangster rubbish like 'Lock Stock...'. Shane Meadows does this sort of thing much better. 'Daddy's Girl' contains nothing of interest whatsoever. (* out of *****)
