The Unbearable

The Unbearable


Reviewed by: Amber Wilkinson

This short film about the nature of toleration and boredom is more like a three minute sketch than a movie. You could imagine it slipping neatly in to an alternative comedy series with ease - although the production values are higher.

A farmer and his mother sit alone in a house. The evening is only punctuated by the creak of her rocking chair and the click of her knitting needles. The sound rhythms of this short are fun and draw you into the story, so much so that the pay off is something of a disappointment, you want to spend longer in their company.
