This short film is abut two conjoint twins who got separated when they were young. They want to be back together again, with disastrous results.
I am amazed by the level of production of this short film. All the figures and even the sets are skilfully designed and made. The music is very atmospheric, suiting and lifting the level of sadness and melancholy throughout the film. Above all, I am the most amazed by the amount of plot they fit in in just 9 minutes. The complex psychological issues facing conjoined twins before and following separation is portrayed very well, and this is done without a single word has been uttered. "The Separation" is very well crafted, and I recommend it.
