1.112: Sonnet 48: The fantasy element doesn't wholly work but is better than the absence of anything else
2 July 2016 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

For the most part this film reminded me of one of the very first Sonnet Project films – which was really just the text delivered at a New York location. Since then the project developed much more into actual short films but sonnet 48 (112 films into the series) does mostly feel like it is just the text being read over images. Filmed at a wildlife reserve in Queens, the visual delivery is mainly one man walking around while the voice-over delivers the text.

For the most part there doesn't feel like any connection between the two. The sonnet speaks of the worry the writer has because he cannot lock up the beauty of his subject to protect it from those that would steal it – so although he secures his worldly valuables from robbery, he cannot do this to the same extent with his subject. The text is clearly delivered, and mostly the attractive scenery does not provide a distraction from the words, so it is easy to get into. At the last minute we have a fantasy element come into play which makes something about of the 'not being able to capture and secure this beauty' aspect, but it really comes out of nowhere and it seems rather out of place to basically have Tinkerbell show up for the last few lines.

Still, this last minute addition is better than the absence of anything else to connect to up till that point. I guess the beauty of nature was meant to be the aspect used for this text, which I think could have been clearer and better done than it was in the end.
