Storyline

Andrew and Sue are a seemingly happy couple, despite the fact that Sue is married to another man. However, Andrew is racked with guilt at the thought of inflicting on Sue's husband the pain that was caused to him when his ex-wife left him for another man. After having a romantic meal together, Andrew's conscience catches up with him and, over the events of one evening, it becomes apparent that Andrew must decide what is stronger: the increasing hate that he feels for himself, or the love that he feels for Sue.

Deceivingly Simple Short With Great Depth & Humanism...
21 November 2008 | by wobelixSee all my reviews

The short film ANDREW lasts but 15 minutes, but like a true Short it surpasses its boundaries majestically. What a wonderful film !

Shorts almost beg to be watched more often, and ANDREW grows stronger and more poignant after each viewing.

Labeled as a 'psychological romantic drama', it is much more than that. Yes, there is the mess the modern human being makes of love & relationships. And sure, this is a serious and profound work, without much space to show some of the great humor this director is blessed with. (Yet ... his cheekiness does show for a mere second in the reaction of the Don Juan when asked "How could you"...)

Again, I agree that this film is about guilt and infidelity and the (im)possibility to live truly together. Beautifully written, and the director gets the absolute best out of his cast. All actors are superb, showing great finesse in their roles. They are not playing, they ARE Sue & Robert & Jennifer & Will & ... Andrew. Boy oh boy, would it be marvelous to see these actors (much) more often !

So, what has not yet been mentioned, which makes ANDREW so much more than merely a very good short film ? It's the Impossible Struggle of Mankind, which principal character Andrew has to deal with. Andrew IS Good, feels that he has to DO Good, refuses to cut corners or react Badly, and yet hate is raging in his blood and brain. Because of what is happening to him, AND because of the decisions he has to make in order to remain Good. What a dilemma. ANDREW is as philosophical as it is psychological.

That fight is the core of ANDREW, and makes this wonderful Short a powerful and lasting experience.

Now, let's all hope that Alex Barrett is going to tread us to a lot more of his exciting work !
