- Ten Minute Tales review by JD
12 films each of 10 minutes with no words. In most of these short film is at least one great actor and often a great writer, notably Neil Gaiman and yet it just felt too arty for me, like watching a drama school lesson. Most of the films had a Christmas theme, most had a very simple plot, in a few, tediously a blossoming romance. Surely you can squeeze a little more plot into 10 minutes. There was something interesting about all of them, but not enough to like or intrigue.1 film for example was a dog-cam, life as a dog in a shopping mall. One of the best for me featured Ross Kemp (possibly not the greatest actor) but also featured a gang of street gymnasts doing incredible tumbles and jumps. The Spall film includes some amazing models which need a second look to check that they are not real. Generally however dull.
