It leaves you wanting more...
24 January 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"The Half Twin" is a bit frustrating to watch. The film is enjoyable but unfortunately when it ends, you are left wanting to know so much more. Let's just hope that the man who made this short, Mark Zampella, gets funding to perhaps hash out the story into a full length tale.

The story is about a sad little family. The father (Ed Ericsson) has dementia and his daughter is running herself ragged trying to maintain a job and take care of him all by herself. However, in the midst of all this, she learns that she might have a half-sister--but getting the story out of her father is practically impossible due to his mental state. She gets bits and pieces...then he forgets that he told her anything. There obviously is a secret child but who exactly she is and whether or not the half-sisters will ever meet is something the audience needs to know...but doesn't.

The film seems more like a teaser for a bigger project than a typical short. As such, I would LOVE for Zampella to acquire more funding and go ahead with the rest of the story. Well worth seeing...rough edges and all.

By the way...imagine my surprise when my Doctor's office is the setting for part of the film. Yes, little old Sarasota Florida is the setting for this very interesting vignette.
