OSCAR SHORT FILM REVIEW – MY EYES – “A Worthy OSCAR Contender”

A film review by Jamie Richardson

“He has my eyes,” is the only reference given by a lady driving her car on a wet and windy day; mesmerised by the road juggler who in her eyes looks familiar, she is willing to bear the road rage of drivers to pay him. 

Unable to pay the juggler at the time the lady circles the streets looking for him and finally sees the lad walking home, having paid the young man she offers to give him a lift home. 

Kseniya Rappoport, playing the woman in the car is superb in her role of portraying the lady who has a longing, whilst the dialogue is simple, it is her physical actions, her expression, and her whole demeanour, that send mixed messages.

Whilst the dialogue is simple, it is her physical actions, her expression, and her whole demeanour, that send mixed messages.

The intense scene in the car that follows is beautifully photographed and what occurs (and you will have to watch the film to find out) leaves the woman dazed and confused. 

MY EYES is a film that has a deep and profound message on the trials and tribulations of life for everyday people.

Writer/Director Tommaso Acquarone has created a wonderful short story about life and longing. The exciting cinematography created by Andrea Benjamin Manenti brings realism to the obscurity of the event.

A brilliant film that will leave you with your mouth wide open! Tommaso Acquarone’s MY EYES is a worthy OSCAR contender.
