CGiii Comment

Not a word is spoken...none are needed.

Instead...a rich and sensual soundtrack...a rarity for a short film.

And, with the [legendary] Canon 5D MKII...the photography is vivid and, thankfully, devoid of any silly gimmicks.

Mr Grasskamp has indeed entered into troubling territory...a slightly off-the-rails girl crosses-the-line...can anything be recovered from the wreckage?

By the end...you'll be left wondering...of these two girls - who is the more helpless? Victim, perpetrator...who is who?

This is a damn fine collaborative film...with a wide range of talents coming together - Mr Grasskamp has definitely set the ball rolling for what will (and should) become a feature.

Keep the complexity. Keep the composer...and, retain that fragile menace...
