With No One In The World by Tal Haring

Badge finalist Finalist for Summer 2012 International Film Contest in Drama

Running away from the cops and bleeding to death, Michael walks into a local pub hoping to stay there until the heat wears off. A meeting with the pub's depressed waitress, Maya, forces Michael to hide his injuries and past. As the night progresses and the couple open up to each other more and more, Michael's wounds begin to grow fatal without Maya ever noticing a thing - giving us a sad tale about love, relationships and how little we know about the people around us.

I like the pacing of this film; it doesn't try to rush, as many shorts do. The opening scene is brilliant in its surprise value. Michael, the character who seems least likely to walk away from the situation, is the only one who does. The circular effect of the the drug user shot, cut to shooting scene, back to dead drug user, seems a foreshadowing of what's to come.

Three suggestions:

1. Michael is bleeding to death. There should be more blood!

2. It's difficult to believe Maya would not notice the extent of Michael's injuries.

3. There are a few translation issues with the English subtitles, mostly related to verb tense.

Keep making films!
