In the pines

In the Pines is the kind of short film I love. Simple storyline, perfectly executed.

Of course, by simple, I do not mean bland or incomplete. It says what it has to say, says it very eloquently, and does not get lost in useless sequences or secondary plots.

The whole short is following this young woman who is travelling through the forest. There are no dialogues. We only ever hear her through a voice message left to her mother. This message will be delivered to the audience as a voice over through the whole film.

This voice over is a master piece of monologue. It gives all the information the audience needs to know without being too mechanic. And it builds up in intensity slowly enough that we don’t see it coming if we happen not to pay attention. Until it reaches a beautiful climax.

It is definitely worth its 9 minutes.
