Best of Twelfth Raindance Film Festival Shorts DVD
9 May 2005 | by stellasimsSee all my reviews

Last October the Twelfth Raindance Film Festival held its annual celebration of the best talent in independent film-making, from low/no budget shorts to sophisticated indie blockbusters.

The Raindance Festival Shorts DVD showcases the best of the shorts on offer. Two very entertaining comedies provide easily enjoyable moments amongst the more arty and obscure shorts.

Handicap, a French-made short, begins as a typically Gaelic romance brimming with warm candle light and erotic tension after a woman settles with her beau in her apartment after a dinner date. As the couple begin to get more amorous, they find themselves in an absurdly funny situation as the woman becomes compelled to talk dirty. It is hard to describe the film without giving away the joke but the film is a clever, hilarious treat.

Inventive stories painting different moods, conveyed with striking images and engaging dialogue all pumped out within the short time frame make Best of Twelfth Raindance Film Festival Shorts an absolute must have for filmmakers, and film lovers alike. The diversity of the creative talent presented means that there is something for every viewer to appreciate here.
