Elefante |Short Film

 “Manuel is stuck in a monotonous job, has only one friend that he cannot stand, and his family despises him. Everything will change when the doctor diagnoses him with a rare disease…”

A surprisingly sad film, which I thought would be a comedy, Elefante shows what happens to you in the cold world where you stick out. Manuel has a horrible life, with a wife that doesn’t care, no true friends and a sucky job and on top of that gets diagnosed with a rare disease. But even with all of that, his small son is his only beacon of hope in humanity and life.

            On the positive side, great  musical score that pull at your heart strings, as well as pretty good practical vfx, that actually resembled what I think a humanoid elephant (“elefante”) would look like as well as leaving enough in the eye makeup department to draw in the emotions. The acting was so-so however, with the kid and “best friend” parts probably being the lesser of quality. Overall, a pretty cool foreign short to check out!
