A little too floaty for my taste but still hard not to be taken by it
18 April 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Judging by the names on the final credits this appears to have been a family effort since both cast members and the director all share the same surname. The limited scale of the film suggests further that the film was made for a very limited budget – although it is to be said that this is not a negative comment as I didn't think the film was limited by this. The plot sees a young woman find an old Polaroid instant camera in an old beach house but when she takes pictures with it, it seems to capture images that are not there – particularly of a young man smiling and hanging around the house.

Although it is limited in resources, the Lewis' have made the most of this film, doing everything from scoring it through to writing and filming it. The end result is a rather floaty short which will appeal to romantics best since the tone is very delicate and soft throughout. This is in the piano score underneath the whole film as well as in the rather delicate shot selection. In terms of where the film goes and what it is trying to do, I must concede that it is the best way to do it but for me personally I felt it was so overegging this aspect of delivery that I presumed it was heading to a surprise ending where it flipped everything on the viewer – that is how far to one end of the spectrum it was trying to get. It doesn't do this and as a result it works better, even though I still felt it used the delivery to push and drag the viewer to a certain point rather than letting us get there ourselves – but it is only a short film so it is understandable.

So to me it was limited by personal taste, but even still it was hard not to be taken by the idea and the nice charm it had in its style.
