A beautiful, witty and original film
14 December 2010 | by bellabeebexSee all my reviews

I saw this film in a festival recently and it is without a doubt one of the best short films I have ever seen. While stories from a child's perspective seem to be quite common in short films worldwide, The Six Dollar Fifty Man goes far beyond the tropes of this genre and delivers a script that is both witty and original and Oscar Vandy Connor as Andy is a revelation, utterly convincing and empathetic, and unlike any other child actor you are likely to see in cinema today. From the opening shot you are absolutely hooked, a tribute to the sublime direction and cinematography. This is as close as you will ever get to seeing a perfect short film. If you have the opportunity to see it, take it. It'll stay with you for a long long time.
