Movie Reviews

This film is more like a poem than the narratively fixated majority. Lou Lou lives here has broken free of the strictures of the film grammar cookie cutter and as a consequence creates a unique visual style and feel It contains some disturbing visuals and creates an unsettling tone using the digital technology to good effect. Very uncomfortable to watch. I'd recommend seeing this film if you have the chance. Its a good film and you can learn something yourself about what makes a good short film with very little expense. Judging from the page on IMDb its not very well known. I checked it out of my university library with a bunch of other digital shorts but this was better than the others by some distance. The girl puts in a subtle performance, a real feather in the cap for 'Lou Lou' which i was a little surprised by because often major studio productions struggle to produce credible performances from children. Perhaps most importantly and setting itself apart from many short films(or the ones i seem to see anyway) it is not smug or self satisfied or tries to overwhelm you with its own cleverness.
