A story that could be explored further...
12 June 2006 | by rebecca-150See all my reviews

'Eve' tells the story of a robot girl whose human owner realizes he's fallen in love with her just when she's starting to break down. Despite pressure to replace her with a more 'modern' robot, he just can't bring himself do it. I give credit to writer/director Paul Leeming for making a short film that's not a gimmick but a science-fiction love story, something Australian filmmaker's would rarely tackle.

The film features strong performances from the leads; Tara Clark is very convincing, and brings both a mechanical quality and a child-like presence to the role of Eve, while Adam J. Yeend plays the conflicted Mark with a certain coldness and brings a lot of pain to his character. The film does contain some nudity in the opening but it was tastefully done and something I thought added another dynamic to the relationship of Mark and Eve.

In the end, I don't think the film quite manages to pull off what it set out to do but it's a story that could definitely be explored further. The film is beautifully shot, scored, well acted, and is for once trying to do something different.
