Film Review: A Broken One
Posted By admin on December 4, 2017 5:39pm
The film tells a rather simple story of a man cherishes the memory of his dead wife, with a little help from someone that share. The story is set in beautiful scenery that seems extremely carefully designed and lit. There is not a lot of background information given before the main characters are introduced, but the defined differences between the widower and the creature is clearly noted. The establishment of the relationship between two broken characters could be described a little sudden, but it also conveys the characters’ personality.
The slow camera movements and the music compliment each other quite well. In fact not only the pace, but also all the movements seem to be rather slow to a point that everything feels surreal. It makes the dancing in the end very much a dream, a dream that is too good to be true. The sad, depressed emotion never really left the film but it somehow becomes more complex during the dance, as it is mixed in with a flashback to the great memory that at least once existed.
A Broken One is an Official Selection at the 2016 New York City Independent Film Festival.
