Stunning imagery should be a feature I want more!
25 March 2019 | by DougofdarkwaterSee all my reviews

So as an opener I have to say i love the concept and production design. Should I give it 10? Honestly? A full budget film made by seasoned pros no, and I'll get to that. A short made by an exceptionally talented tenacious teen, yes absolutely. What this young female has managed to create is fantastic in all senses of the word. It's only flaws, is the story feels incomplete, not bad for a short, you should want more, but incomplete in that the story has a couple of holes and feels slightly confused. On investigation that's down to budget and time (we all know about that), sadly also victimisation, this is a valient and successful effort from a first time young filmmaker and pettyness and jealousy of adults who should no better has meant it's been under valued and incomplete. That said if you like your fantasy thrillers absorbing and cerebral it's a winner, those holes allow you to become a joint story teller imagening what's happening in the rooms you don't see, filling in the gaps. I was totally absorbed and transfixed. I felt tested and as if I had been on a journey, wanting to know more and slap a few mysoginistic fools! (In the story and in the real world). If you see it at a festival go see it it's fab.
