Disjointed but Gets the Message Across
13 August 2013 | by cB391See all my reviews

This short definitely tries to capture the pain in loss. It explores the life of a widower who tries to forget his partner, but is transported into her "broken" camera; where he experiences her pictures as reality.

The length of the film allows it to develop a concise beginning, middle and end. On the other hand, the randomness of how the camera works affected my viewing of the film, as well as the random scenes that are captured, that especially differ from what Jack believes is in the camera.

The images and the sound are beautifully done, and compliment the simplicity of the plot. The acting by Ryan Dunlap, and Mark Gullickson do not completely capture any sense of amazement in the fantastical world, but rather seem almost instantly accepting of it.

The ending is perfect for any viewers who want to get lost in the past, but can also be used to understand how sever depression results after the passing of a spouse or close family member.

Overall, it is a 7/10, because there are some flaws. On the other hand it is only 4-5 minutes, so it is worth a watch, but don't expect too much out of it.
