Extremely unique look at the issue of domestic abuse
14 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

A beautiful young woman named Camille (an incredible debut by the lovely Marcela Rasa) struggles to break free of the violence inflicted on her by her lover (Ty Mayberry). While merely existing in the stranglehold of her lover's unpredictable rage, Camille is finally convinced by an "old friend" to risk everything for a new start.

I was part of a group that screened this film at the Hollywood International Student Film Festival. After seeing "Inamorata" we talked about it all the way home and it was an extremely insightful springboard for discussion of a topic that is so often overlooked. This film really gets to the heart of why so many women struggle to get out of the abusive relationships they are in.

First-time director Van Nessa Y Manlunas' production design in "Inamorata" is flawless in its "everything is normal on the outside" approach, which only contrasts the reality of what is being born out in Camille's home life. The unique score (by "Only Survivor" composer Deane Ogden) supports the stark isolationism of Camille's naive and suffocating commitment to Jacob with textural washes of piano and orchestra.

The twist at the end of the film is incredibly unique and none of us ever saw it coming. If you get a chance, this short film is worth taking the time.
