More like a pitch than a short film in many ways.
15 April 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Haruka Abe stars as Anna--a very odd woman who assassinated folks from the future. This, according to the film, is a great way for organized crime to get rid of the bodies. However, Anna does something she's told not to do--she takes the pillowcases off the victims' heads and talks to them before killing them. And then, comes a surprise...

This short film from Tony Sebastian Ukpo seems to me much more like a calling card than a short film. What I mean is that the film seems more like Ukpo is pitching a story idea--one that he appears to want to flesh out more if he can get the financing for a full-length version. Many young filmmakers have projects like these and they are much more oriented towards introducing a story idea than telling a full story like you would in other types of short films. This isn't bad...but it also makes scoring this film difficult. The idea looks intriguing.
