gripping "short" short.
15 November 2006 | by junglejuSee all my reviews

I saw this film recently at the Kerry Film Festival in Ireland and was really blown away. Everything in this work feels just right- the direction, the acting, the cinematography, the editing, etc.

In simple terms, it is a chase film...albeit it a gripping, dark and highly attention grabbing one. I know the film has taken away awards at several festivals- including the above mentioned- and the accolades are more than well deserved.

I think this short is a great calling card- small on running time and showcasing loads of ability. It really presents this filmmaker as one who can not only tell a story, but can express said narrative in a compelling and entertaining way- and with a unique eye. I really look forward to seeing this director move on to bigger (feature) projects, as he seems more than fit to be at the proverbial helm.
