One to watch!!!
17 June 2007 | by imaxyouSee all my reviews

Am a big fan of short films and certainly am one of those who is always on the lookout for ones to watch. The Fairy Who Stole Eyes is one such short. It is in the same category as Wasp, Talking With Angels, Ex-Memoria when it comes to excellence and originality from a director. Beautifully shot, this film and it is a film makes a lasting impression on the senses because after having watched it, the story and the emotional ride stays with you. I think the credit for that lies in a well written script, an original and different idea told as a cinematic story. Directors often fall foul of sacrificing the story telling just so that they can demonstrate visual style and of course keep the short within their running time limit and the pathetically small budgets or even no budgets. The actors deliver superb performances in particular the young child actor playing Ryan. His understated performance and convincing blindness would put many a seasoned actors to shame. This is a worthy short from a filmmaker with a voice who deserves to be championed.
