Realistic, Haunting, Beautiful - _The Quiet Place_ Brings Life to Stills
5 September 2007 | by Larry_L_PeelSee all my reviews

Sometimes 20 frames per second just can't give the impact necessary to tell a story. In Jason Christ's _The Quiet Place_, the director achieves a far more compelling story by producing the entire film using still photographs brilliantly edited with a haunting voice over. The tale, based on Rebecca Kennebeck's poem "Her Soul Flies Free", chronicles the emotional and physical torment of Hope (Julie Farrar) as she struggles with the loss of a friend and her addiction to heroin.

Though the voice over brings to mind the eerie voice of "Jigsaw" from the Saw trilogy, it adds too the sadness and misery faced by Hope and she eventually loses hers, withdrawing farther and farther into her own "Quiet Place". Julie Farrar gives a believable performance, certainly not an easy task considering the filming technique. Christ's venture into cinema de art comes off without a hitch. Hauntingly beautiful, the short is a worthy watch.
