The B story of the comparisons are more interesting than the expected plot twist.
Interesting idea. Fascinating in a voyeuristic sort of way.

One of my favorite videos I’ve ever posted here. There is so much that can go wrong with this idea where the entire thing could come off pretentious. Maybe to some, it might very well be a little pretentious. To me, the filmmaker, Martin de Thurah, walked the line beautifully, it is a dream but unlike some films about dreams, there is a connection to a reality that we can easily comprehend.
Truth be told, I can spend a lot of time looking at Iva Gocheva. Her expressions shift and move so quickly and powerfully, my feelings can’t help from mirroring hers. Just lovely work overall. Excuse me as I watch it another time.

The time shifts are lovely. I think cinema should officially replace the cigarette with the lollipop.
Absolutely lovely project. Via NoFilmSchool, where you can also find a video on how it was made.
While working at the local video store, Vicky meets Sam, who quickly becomes a regular costumer. Both fall in love, ignoring the true reason for their rendez-vous.
A short “metacinema” movie written and directed by Nuno Rocha.
A wonderful little short by Ben Briand. One of the prettiest short narratives we have ever posted on this site. At times, with the actors falling in and out of focus, the extreme shallow depth of field took you out of the scene but to a large extent it works with the moody storyline.
(via Vimeo Festival) Thanks Tim.
Love the production design. A lot of household names in the mix. This is Hollywood seen through fresh eyes.
Stories within stories.
Another beauty from Ayz Waraich who directed White Red Panic. Strong performances, once again.
In a future filled with technology and sin, a hopeless romantic falls for a broken robot he buys at a sex shop, testing how far he’ll go for love. A short film by Lee Citron.
A woman (Alison Bruce) and a man (Alistair Browning) are in love. They trust each other. And everything else flows from that. But what happens if that trust is broken? What can a relationship survive? And when we are left alone, how do we live with our regrets?
Watch it. (Dir. Alessio Fava)
Lovely song, fun video.
