A throwback to the great thriller
13 July 2017 | by mattbrarSee all my reviews

« Vesper » is a kind of experiment which pulls you in and never lets go, not even at the end with unexpected twists. What the director did in 23 minutes is just incredible. There is a huge work to establish a mysterious, strange and an oppressive atmosphere which is actually the key of the movie. Like the characters, we are shut away in a haunted house, from the beginning there's an eerie and we understand characters are hiding secrets from each other.

The storyline is great, the short film has an original concept and Götz Otto's Walter character is incredible! Ambiguous, dreadful, threatening, as devilish as emotional, he's a very complex character, both in the darkness and in the light. Marge is less interesting, but when masks come off, she becomes a very deep character with a lot of psychology… The performances are phenomenal.

Thanks to the evocative cinematography, the mysterious atmosphere, the unsettling score and an excellent direction (camera work, sound…), the building of suspense and mystery is engrossing. During 23 minutes, it's like you're somewhere else… the end is so thrilling...

The movie reminds us Amenabar's « The Others », also some Hitchcock, Lynch, Fincher, De Palma movies… very nostalgic of that time… it's a throwback to the great thriller !

Engrossing, enjoyable short film !
