Nice cinematography, mediocre script
14 January 2013 | by petekurachkaSee all my reviews

I found this short on Vimeo where it was picked as one of the Top 12 Videos of 2012.

Technically it is a very well crafted piece of film, with nicely lit and composed scenes, and some beautiful dreamy bokeh in the background :-) Image wise there's little not to like.

The story seemed intriguing enough, but I couldn't really get into it. At first, I wasn't sure if was the acting or the script, but something seemed off, like watching a staged play, not real life drama.

On 2nd viewing I had to give some credit back to the actors...it is hard to convey character in such a short format and they did probably what they could with the script that didn't really help them. (Even if I still think the guy handled his lines a bit better than the girl).

So it comes down to the script. The dialogues between the two main characters seemed forced and contrived, they sometimes even made me chuckle despite it being a serious scene. (I was like, "really? you would say that? come on...)

Despite all that, I rather enjoyed this short film and I'm sure next one from this director/screenwriter will be better again.
