A final task
26 July 2004 | by Lord_SpodaSee all my reviews

This is an unforgettable short film, a film that takes place at the end of a journey - or in the case of this, two journeys. Wonderfully acted by the lead who has an incredible face, one that shows every emotion this film evokes - sadness, determination, peacefulness. The music at the end is used to stunning effect, and as a viewer it helped to rejuvenate my shattered emotions, the sadness I felt at witnessing only the end of this man's journey and not points beginning and middle. Excellent use of locations and the cinematography is excellent. The edit in particular shines - combining B&W footage with color and great use of fade transitions. Peter Sieben is a filmmaker to watch.
