OTHER SIDE OF THE SHOW, THE cover image
Action, suspense, and humor! The Other Of The Show is a student produced that that has a complex and invigorating plot line, particularly for such a short film. There are so much plot twists and interesting turns that the curiosity of the viewer is on constant high alert.

The film is narrated by an investigator intent on discovering how a girl disappeared. However, every witness points to the possibility of the absolute impossible and we are left to doubt Laura's existence altogether!

The plot of this film is definitely unusual and quirky. The camerawork is quite good; there are some shaky camerawork, but they sort of add to the storyline. The camera angles are varied throughout with a mix of range. The settings are typical for the story, from the theater to the caf�, to outdoor shots. The background music and sound effects works well; at the beginning there is a great selection of pop-type music that creates a very exciting vibe and later it is used for transitions or to help drive the action. The character development offers a series of unexpected and unanticipated plot twists. Not knowing who the key characters actually are is an interesting take. My favorite parts are the stereotypical scenes we are accustomed to seeing in films, created in a DIY sort of way, such as introducing the culprits by spinning around in a circle. This is such a fun and interesting film that incorporates aliens, books and action.

The message of the film is: anything is possible. Always consider the potential of an impossible circumstance. It does show kids doing risky things that kids might imitate; there are acts of violence with children fighting and some gun action. Note, the dialogue is in Croatian with English subtitles.

I give The Other Side Of The Show 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18, plus adults. By Ashleigh C., KIDS FIRST!
