Animal Crackers
5 July 2013 | by alexandracallasSee all my reviews

So short...and so deep. You know, there are words in a book by French author Christian Bobin (the story name is "Everybody's busy"): "When everybody's busy, a murder happens". This thought is so philosophical, and it is exactly about it. As the director of the film has written here, "From the beginning there are clues that something is wrong because Sylvie keeps questioning little Amanda about her parents but because of the cheerfulness of the music we don't really pay attention to this. I think we do the same in life so that we are distracted by nonsense and ignore what is obviously right before our eyes". We can only imagine what exactly had happened and who's fault it was, but the simplicity of crossing the line to the tragedy strikes to the very heart. Want to thank all the team and L'Orage production for the film, and hope there will be a whole series of such important social shorts.
