GEEZ LOUISE cover image
This is an eye catching and very quirky short film. The camera work is fantastic, especially when they do the musical number about the bird. Yes, let's all blame the bird and make him into a nice yummy bird stew. Humor abounds in this short film. The cast made me laugh with all the fun, quirky characters. The little girl is adorable and Grandmother is one every kid would love to have. I can relate to all the characters. The sets and locations are a perfect fit. They do a lot in 18 minutes and tell a whole story. Actually I could see this being a cute kid series along the line of Denise the Menace. The first few minutes of the film however, are a bit slow, but then it picks up and I liked it. It is it fun, energetic and, best of all, original. I recommend this for ages 4 to 10. It is silly and fun so that kids will enjoy it. I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
I highly recommend this film for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival. It's fun and has a great lesson. It meets all the KIDS FIRST! Criteria. I loved watching this creative, but mischievous little girl creating her own fun and watching her funny aunt join her. The kooky family chemistry is amazing. The only thing I disliked was the musical number. However, it does fit right in with the goofy feel of the whole film. I believe children will really like the main character Louise because of her mischievous adventures. This film flows well. This is very suitable and relatable for young children. There is a scene where Louise is gathering supplies to make herself a swing and it's fantastic watching this creative little girl. The camera work is very well done, as is the audio. The storyline is age appropriate and, of course, something goes wrong and it has to be made it right, no matter how reluctant Louise might be. I really appreciate that, by the end, Louise has paid for her mistakes and but there is not a feeling of doom. Instead there is a feeling of a lesson learned and hope for the future. I recommend this for ages 5 to 12 and give it 4 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Rachael V., KIDS FIRST! Juror.
A rollerblading 9-year-old, has a knack for creative danger. Her kooky Grandma and brothers spend the day searching for the family's escaped pet bird but Louise has other plans inside the neighborhood construction site. While innocently swinging from the beams of a half built home Louise manages to make the biggest mistake of her life. She must confront her crazed community and the realities of messing up. A family film.
