Storyline

Lacey is a girl of about ten. On a lazy day, she watches some TV, rides her bike in front of her house, then explores a field across from her front door. A shirtless man pets her dog. She goes up to him and he bends close to take a bug off her shoulder and hand it to her. Is this an innocent or a dangerous world? Is Lacey in trouble? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Inspiring and unique
8 November 2012 | by BeautyKilledTheBeastFilmSee all my reviews

I'll make it short: This film gets taught at the MFA Film program at Columbia University in NYC, which alone might already mean a lot. I just hope the filmmakers know about the impact of their little film and that it is used as reference on teaching the art of short films.

When we discussed it in class we had mixed reactions. Some loved it and some hated it. For me it's probably the only perfect short film I've ever seen. Inspiring and unique. A film against prejudices, beautifully shot and edited. A must see that will probably be shown to film students even in the next few decades. There is a bad quality version on Youtube. Please don't watch this one and try to find a good copy on some DVD collection. You won't regret it.
