As the light fades and the city goes to sleep, two forces emerge. They are invisible except for the power they exert over us in our sleep, battling for our souls through dreams. One Force delivers hope and strength through good dreams; the other infuses the subconscious with desperation through nightmares. John and Emma, Father and Daughter are wrenched into this fantastical dream world battle, forced to fight for John's soul and to save Emma from an eternal nightmare. Separate in their journey, they encounter unusual characters that exist only in their subconscious. Or do they?
Misfiring indie fantasy
- Ink review by Alphaville
This indie film, about light and dark forces battling inside our unconscious, has imagination to spare, but it’s a tough watch. It’s like an experimental student film, overly keen to play with the mechanics at its disposal – light, colour, texture, frenzied hand-held camera, freeze-frame etc. Little of this is to any purpose. Instead of letting narrative drive take over, the film presents a complete mish-mash of pointless image manipulation. The narrative fails to grip and the acting fails to convince. There’s plenty of cinematic imagination here, but if only it had been harnessed to better effect.
