‘Klutz’ and ‘A Good Couple’ highlight emotions and needs

Stories of loss and need.

Klutz is a short film that combines a number of ideas. Every time Zowie falls, her recently deceased sister appears to her. Is it truly a rip reality or is it a product of her grief? The premise almost necessitates an explanation and some may be surprised that is not the direction the film goes in. Klutz is a story of grief and acceptance. It is not about how things are happening, but why. 

The real beauty of Klutz is captured in the moments of silence. The strong performances also help keep viewers interested in Zowie’s life. The short is about trying to move on and finding a place in the world when all seems lost. The film uses universal themes and humor to draw audiences in. There is a relatability that makes the film effortlessly interesting and watchable.

A Good Couple moves at a different speed. The short film is about a woman who realizes that her perfect boyfriend may be too good to be true. What follows is a rumination on love and desire. Writer-director Robert Gregson makes excellent use of reflections. The camera adds to the story’s theme of what people want versus what they perceive. The story sprints towards its fantastic ending that will stay with audiences.

'Klutz' and 'A Good Couple' highlight emotions and needs

The film does a great job of playing to feelings everyone can understand. The idea of perfection is something everyone works tirelessly on everyday. This can be through social media or the expectations we have of those closest to us. Often times, it leads to a sense of disappointment. A Good Couple explores getting exactly what is wanted and the price that has to be paid.
