I love this gem.  It's beautiful in it's simplicity, and it relies so much on Damien's ability to create a character....it is so focused on him.

That is a neat one line review of the film fifi!

agree... it is a beautiful snapshot of a moment in William's life... and there is a subtle but powerful emotion to it...that leaves a resonance.. and enough ambiguity to leave us wondering about it all...

Lol!  As reviews go mine was rather biased and lacking in objectivity.....I might as well have said 'I like Damien and he's in this a lot'!

Let's just pretend I said everything that you've just said!

Let's just put it all together:

It's beautiful in it's simplicity, and it relies so much on Damien's ability to create a character....it is so focused on him. it is a beautiful snapshot of a moment in William's life... and there is a subtle but powerful emotion to it...that leaves a resonance.. and enough ambiguity to leave us wondering about it all...
i.e. I like Damien and he's in this a lot

best. review. ever.

Not as good as our review above, but nice to see 'Making Rosebud' mentioned in this short film review

(and also bumping this topic up for any of our newbies who have not seen this short film of Damien's)

But yes - it is nice to see!

I confess, my agenda was to have a reason to bump this topic up, to bring one of Damien's earlier film works to the attention of new fans who may not have seen it.... before he makes his debut in his first full length feature films next year! action

I LOVE this one.  I love it a lot more than the other.  I found it so intense.  (I guess you could read, Damien is so intense!) And I love how much it relies on Damien.  A very powerful atmosphere and it really expresses something.  I have such a sense of both the character and his Father... and something both of their art and what they are/were to each other... even though you don't even see the art, or any of their actual relationship, or barely the Father!  LOVE THIS.  I think this film shows Damien's talent very well.  All it is is one conversation, focussed on his face and silent scenes.  I LOVE IT!  smilesmilesmilesmilesmile

I thought this was very atmospheric and I totally agree about Damien's intensity in this film. I was a bit confused by it though, I'm afraid!

littleimpulse - I am so glad you found your way here!  This little film is such a treat.  And it's impact is huge considering how short it is - 'intense', 'powerful' and 'expressive' sum it up very nicely...... every time I watch it I feel like I've been holding my breath for the whole 9 minutes!

That Gustavo Santaolalla track is incredibly atmospheric -  I've heard snippets of it pop up from time to time in various things.....and it always brings me straight back here to Billy - specifically the shot of him standing on the station platform from some reason!

Taking a visit back to things like this is brilliant! Really helps see just how far Damien has come and his development as an actor. I feel like a dad watching my son grow up! lol :')

Just stumbled on this on youTube and seeing as the topic hasn't been bumped for a year or so, I thought I'd bump it in case anybody else "needs" to watch! I'll pop the link in to save searching back through the thread in case that's helpful.

I thought this was a lovely visual equivalent to a short story, complete with perfect last line. For a student piece, it was beautifully shot (I'd have liked different lighting for some shots but I'm guessing resources were pretty minimal) and the brooding intensity worked really well with the subject matter.

Isn't it great to have early stuff like this available to us - hooray for video platforms! Really interesting to see the early stages of an actor's development and easy to see so much potential there - more roles so we see more of it, please!

Still not sure I entirely understand this film but Damien is wonderfully intense in it.
