Fantastic Short Film Friday - Interpretation (live-action)
And we are back after a slight hiatus with another installment in our Fantastic Short Film Friday series, as we continue to showcase films released in the "lesser" known form of cinema- the short film.
This week we have for you a truly gripping fable on the understanding and interpretations of life's messages. Here is a 9-minute crime short Interpretation from stuntman extraordinaire now turned director, Lin Oeding. Like the best action film, this is a story about the choices we make and how our understanding of history and literature can shape our work views.
Set in any urban city, with a couple that could be you out on stroll after a fun date. a group of thugs who quote from Sun-Tzu’s The Art of War, corner the unsuspecting couple and try to mug them. However it's the thugs and their lack of understanding of The Art of War that may lead them to ultimately be the victims. The action is intense and compact and the editing of the action is wonderfully done. This is one taut crime short, one that had me on the edge of my seat holding my breath, exhaling only when the credits finished rolling.
Check this out if you need an adrenaline rush in your day or if you like to start your day with some good old fashioned action. There's some good levity, some good comedic moments from the actors that give the viewer a slight breather but when the story picks up, wow, it's truly riveting. Enjoy this weeks dose of short film goodness in, Interpretation.
