    Fall

    Fiona McCann

    This short film by Patrick Jolley, with its hauntingly beautiful soundtrack by Brian Crosby (formerly of Bell X1 and the man behind The Cake Sale) may feel like a meditation on falling house prices, but has a hypnotic quality that transcends any trite interpretations.  It was screened at the Cork Film Festival last year, and has since been shown at various European festivals, but I can’t find a full-length version on t’internet to insert here. Instead, I offer you a link to Brian Crosby’s site, which streams a few minutes, to Jolley’s own site, which streams a few other minutes, and a still below, to give you an idea. Go watch what you can and report back immediately.

      The opening scene – I was waiting for a large, speeding wheel of cheese and some sprinters.

      They never came.

      On that basis, it was disappointing, but I suspect they were never pencilled in, and in every other way it is a beautiful bit of film.

      Markham: It is beautiful, ain’t it? Shame about the cheese.
