Recursion

by Aram Vidal

Earlier this week we presented the trailer on FilmShortage to this mind-bending short film, not only mind-bending from its erotic continuity and graphics, but mostly from its twisted puzzled-loop plot that makes me think of a film like ‘Cube‘. This time it’s two girls waking up in a locked room not knowing how they ended up there.

È finita la commedia

by Jean-Julien Collette & Olivier Tollet


Despite the Italian title, this is a French short film directed by Jean-Julien Collette & Olivier Tollet. The Italian title refers to an Italian saying, which is reffered too in the film ‘È Finita la commedia’, meaning ‘The Comedy is Over’. The black & white short is about a father and son having an intense conversation about life, love, sex, death and mother/wife. The two appear to be in collaboration over something and it is obvious that they have an unusually close relationship. Time goes by and although the questions keep coming they remain unanswered. What are they waiting for?
