A lyrical short with natural performances and nostalgic visuals that will please most.
10 January 2015 | by EJIfilmsSee all my reviews

APRICOT is a short narrative that strikes the notes of nostalgia and serendipity right on the head. The modern day Aussie story dives right into a conversation between a man and a woman in a café. It is apparent early on that this is a first encounter between the twenty-somethings. The playful banter is turned into pointed personal questioning which leads the young lady to reminisce about her childhood first love. The action cuts between the present and the woman's wistful memories. The narrative takes a turn that leads one to believe that this may not be a first encounter at all.

This lyrical little film will please most audiences. Ben Briand shows restraint and does not try to do too much with this one as the writer and director. The cinematography is beautiful, especially for the flashback sequences. The main performances, Lauren Gordon and Ewen Leslie, feel natural and the score complements the story and visuals like a glove. It is obvious that the Briand knew exactly what he wanted, and he executes all the way around. This short is definitely worth watching and Ben Briand is perhaps someone to watch as well.
