A vague plotted, yet visually impressive short film.
23 March 2003 | by cjl467See all my reviews

I did not really like the general atmosphere and style of this movie. Things were too vague. Short film can often be limiting, and keeps a director from clearly expressing his intent, and unless this movie was filled with pointless scenes to convince the audience to draw their own conclusions, this was the case.

A woman brings her daughter and one of her daughter's friends with her to meet with an ex-convict. The mother used to be the ex-convict's social worker, and through out the film it is made apparent that the mother is attracted to this ex-convict.

A lot of this film could really be put up for debate as far as what was meant. The movie ends abruptly, and I felt that a lot was left unexplained, however one could argue otherwise. The daughter talks in sort of a voice like she is reading from a book, and there were no other performances to speak of. Most of the cinematography was good; the DoP did a good job of taking advantage of what scenery he had to deal with.
