Cleverly done, and amusing, but as a whole film it is never as good as the idea and technical side
5 April 2015 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

Leonard lives at a much slower pace than the rest of us; by which I mean, he moves in slow motion and anything he tries to do occurs in a quarter of the speed of normal people, whether it is jogging or pouring a cup of coffee. When he learns that the woman in the office that he has a crush on is moving to another role in Florida, he realizes he must move quickly, or risk losing her forever.

This is a very cleverly done short in terms of the idea and the technical delivery of it. Like one of the characters in the short observes, it doesn't get old to see Leonard moving so slowly while surrounded by others moving normally. This effect is not achieved by the actor just having great control of his body, since the effect applies to anything Leonard does – including pouring liquids and interacting with other material. Technically it is impressive and as an idea it is rather unique to have it as the base for the story. The only problem is that the film built on this base is really not that great; I hoped it would be funnier or clever or sweeter, but while the slow motion device offers a lot of interest and amusement, it also seems to work against the narrative and limit it to a point.

It does still manage to be amusing through, and have a nice conclusion which is not only sweetly done but includes a dig at Florida (and who doesn't enjoy a dig at Florida's expense). The cast look good and are well used, but really it is the technical side that sticks in the memory, with the editing process being particularly tight to make all the footage speeds work together in one scene with really no edges showing. As a whole film it is never as good as the idea and the technology, but this is enough for most of it to carry it through, and generally it is an amusing piece.
