During an opulent banquet, eleven pampered guests participate in what appears to be a ritualistic gastronomic carnage. In this grotesque universe, an unexpected sequence of events destabilizes the endless symphony of abundance.
This is a must see wonderful short. The actors, story and story-telling come together very nicely from start to finish. Cinema savvy folk may realize where the story is heading but the filmmakers provide us with the fun of getting there; the fun of the journey. This two hander is wonderfully acted and by the end your heart is warmed by the possibilities. Set in a winter-scape with clever use of the natural light, surroundings and avoiding the need for props, the direction concentrates on the story-telling and the performances. Short filmmakers can certainly learn a lot from this particular short. There is a very everyday feel to the film, an audience pleaser hence its acceptance to so many festivals in the first place. Well done!
