Short Film

What is it about?

This is how the IMDb describes this short film:

Sophie lives alone with her mother on a desolate farm in the middle of nowhere.

A place that hides a secret far worse than she could have imagined.

Here  is a statement about this short film by Kryler Åkerström Film:

Director Statement :

We both come from a childhood marked by much loneliness, where the security of one’s parents was vital.

The thing that scared the most was the thought that once parents would die, or disappear, the security would be crushed, or that it was only an illusion.

With “Reset”, we want to portray this particular fear a child would feel when the worst thinkable becomes a reality.

Final Thoughts

I saw it today when I was looking for random Vimeo Staff Picks, and in my opinion it is a short film that has some mystery and suspense and horror and a bit of science fiction.

The main character of this short film is a girl named Sophie, and as a viewer of this film you slowly discover a secret as Sophie discovers it.

This short film got my attention and I was curious to learn more, I think that it was a pretty good short film that is worth watching and I liked the visuals of the field which seemed a bit like something from a dream (basically a bit surreal at times), and I wish that this short film could have been even longer.

This is probably the first short film that I have seen this year so far, and so it is the best short film that I have seen this far this year 😀 .

Last year some of the best films that I saw of 2016 were short films, most of the longer films that I watched in 2016 were disappointing, and so I hope to watch more short films this year in 2017.
