| strong beginning , loses steam in the end.
I saw 9 shorts at the Toronto after dark film festival and this was one of them. This was very well shot. But I couldn't really make any sense of the story. It felt a little pretentious thanks to the ending. almost like it should have ended with a "Fin" instead of "The End" showing up. Maybe people with film degrees might get this film. This to me seemed like it could be re-cut to be a perfume advertisement or something with the black and white movie and 1950s clothes styling. The story is told as a first person narrative from the point of view of a detective investigating a death in the woods. It goes from there to show us the actual events leading up to the death. It was OK until the ending, the ending is where they lost me completely. I couldn't tell what it meant. Neither could any of the other people watching the movie in my group. That poor ending killed the whole short for me, which was otherwise well shot and well costumed, with decent acting. Hope to see more of his work in the future perhaps with a more approachable story.
