Tiny Death

Tiny Death


Reviewed by: Amber Wilkinson

Following an almost dogme protocol, this short film by Kaspar Munk, speaks of an emotional reality that will resonate with anyone over the age of 15.

A bunch of kids go to a pal's house. They're all in their early teens, on the verge of adolescence, while their pal has a few years on them and, therefore, has a ready supply of soft porn magazines.

Technically, though, it's not the jazz mags they're after, it's the sight of his snake - a boa constrictor - chasing a white mouse round a maze of books he's constructed.

Munk's thoughtful film focusses on these two primitive attractions - sex and violence - as they vie for the kids' attention, neatly capturing the youthful fascination that comes with the advent of hormones.

Interesting, cleverly shot and highly intelligent.
