En eftermiddag 2014
8min | Short, Drama, Romance | July 2014 (Italy)
Mathias is in love with Frederik, but is he ready to make his move?
When the power of simplicity trumps everything else, you get a little short like this one that’s able to capture and describe a moment so perfectly. Friends Mathias and Frederik spend an afternoon alone at the latter’s house where the former is planning to finally reveal his feelings for his friend. But with Frederik hung up on texting a girl, Mathias begins to lose confidence. The outcome is extremely cute and both actors do a great job at selling the paralyzing fear brought by uncertainty and self-doubt. There’s a reason why they’re called short films and this one makes the most of its limited running time yet makes you longing for more, which is the best compliment a short could probably get.
