Cinema The Turning

The film's ambition occasionally gets the best of it.


The film's ambition occasionally gets the best of it. The collection begins with a stunning animated preface from director Marieka Walsh that establishes central motifs, including the sea, fishing and fire. The first story, Thornton's Big World, draws the viewer in with a story of boyhood friendship and regret that's as affecting as it is evocative. Like the best pieces here it succeeds by avoiding the precious, one-dimensional quality of so many short films; it trusts the audience enough to present a tantalising glimpse of a fully-formed dramatic world. Most episodes are strikingly open-ended; the same characters are played by different actors, often of different races, creating a dreamlike quality.
