Written and directed by George Bartlett, 11mins
Set in Berlin, Sunday follows two men as they attempt a bank robbery. It is equally funny and charming. When lead character, Jorge, struggles to recite De Niro’s famous Heat quote, “don’t walk into anything you can’t leave in 30mins,” we get a great glance into his character: one haunted by his own self-perception and desire to make a difference. This is heightened by the film’s shaky cam documentary style. Bartlett has the boom drift into shot occasionally, only to be pushed away by the cameraman. Both characters are charismatic and performed nicely and the film is tightly edited. The fantastic thing about Sunday is that it feels like a group of five friends decided to pick up a camera one day and shoot a short film. It’s professional but with its rough edges still in tact.
