Beautifully Constructed Film
27 April 2011 | by smeghead101See all my reviews

Tremendously elegant film, magical, humane and truthful. Well-rounded and observed, the lead character charts us through the dark and lonely fissures of modern life and its inherent dramas, both real and imagined. It sums up the distance between institutions to see a film like this emerge from a body like VCA (I believe this was its origins) that the prosaic outpourings of its NSW equivalent in AFTRS might see the wonder stripped from it. Whereas the magic realist approach can sit comfortably within the frame here, I can only imagine its treatment via other institutions to have been hampered. I always shiver sitting down to watch a film that has 20 minutes listed as its running time but with SAFE I can't imagine time better spent on a story. I can only hope it reaches a wider audiences through festival exposure.
