Essential viewing for short-film enthusiasts
- Cinema 16: European Short Films review by WS
Sixteen films from established directors showing a remarkable range of tone, style, and subject matter.
There's "Charlotte et Veronique", Godard's delightful neo-Nouvelle Vague comedy about a young Parisian philanderer; "L'Homme sans Tete", an allegorical fantasy that gives a whole new meaning to "head shop"; "Talk", a sombre tale of a social vampire who is desperate for company after being fired from his job; and "Gisele Kerosene", a demented caper in which transvestite witches on combustion-powered broomsticks hurtle through an ultra-modern cityscape in pursuit of a stolen relic. Other stand-outs include a stop-motion from the master of Czech surrealism; a gentle yet sardonic comedy from Chris Morris about a man who thinks his dog can talk; and an over-zealous anti-racist who comes a cropper in Jensen's hilarious "Election Night".
Should be something to please everyone - there are no real duds except the forgettable "Opening Day of Close Up" and maybe "Nocturne" which is perhaps too minimalist for most people's taste - so I'm a little surprised to see it rated at only 3.5 stars.
