Film Review: Darla (short film) (2015)

Darla-short-film-Eric Connelly

SYNOPSIS:

A homeless man is interrupted during his nightly routine by a familiar and chilling sound. Will he chose the right path? Will he find salvation?

REVIEW:

Another short film! Today we have DARLA, written and directed by Eric Connelly.

Our story focuses on a nameless homeless man (Matt Fowler)browsing through the dumpsters in a back alley looking for whatever he can find. Just as the man has finished his shoppping and prepares to move on to the next alley, he hears a strange sound. It appears to be coming from one of the dumpsters. Is that a baby crying?

Now this man is in the uncomfortable position of having to make a desicion. Does he do the right thing and save this abandoned child? or does he roll on and leave the problem to someone else? Are all good deeds rewarded?

I can’t say much of anything about this film without ruining it. I will say it is short, sweet, to the point. It wastes no time and tells a story that may not be complete, but we get everything we need from it.

If I have any complaint, it is that the sound mix is a bit uneven and as a result is a bit distracting.

Using my special short scale of one to five, five being awesome, I’m giving this film 3 babies.
