A moving and beautiful tour de force
17 February 2019 | by sebcamdenSee all my reviews

Fauve is one short film that will stick with you long after your first viewing. By exploring universal themes of youth, control and nature, the film quickly demands your attention and never lets go. The striking performances from the two boys feel both genuine and terrifying. The character development of these two over the 14 min time span is seamless and justified.

All in all, with the help of a dazzling score and gorgeous cinematography, Fauve offers a great exploration that you shouldn't miss, short film enthusiasts or not!
