    80,000 Years Old

    ★★★★

    Rating 8

    A charming short film that has enough scope to become a feature. I'm normally hesitant when suggesting this because the mediums are very different. There's definitely more story here.

    Splitscreen provides an opportunity to pack more information in and the director utilises the technique with skill.

    Loved the subject matter and will reiterate a desire for more of this story.

    The lead is a wonderfully awkward character who I found compelling and well written.

    It certainly strides the border of 7/8 but this has enough going for it to merit the higher ranking.

    4 - I'm a sucker for classical music and the thematic link between the narrative and an orchestral piece
    5 - Some films deal with the themes…

    This film is a headache to review. If ever there was a case example of a film that clutched defeat from the jaws if victory, this might be a strong contender.

    Strong acting, intriguing concept, astute choice of colour pallet and how it adheres to the tone. Puenzo seemingly has everything in place to create an excellent film.

    Unfortunately, in its attempt to retain a shroud of mystery, it becomes incoherent, and implausible - one scene in…
