    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.
