Review of an online Short: Security (by Lars Henning)

Submitted by on June 11, 2008 – 7:53 amNo Comment

This is an unusual one, but I felt I must review every film worth mentioning. The german made (and subtitled) film “Security”, written and directed by Lars Henning and starring Peter Kurth and is a hidden gem. This diamond in the rough though is only 13 minutes long and you are able to view it via vuze (a link and preview is below).

Set in a department store the protagonist is that of the security guard “Becker”. Without giving this short tale away, this film is a lesson to all those directors and actors out there (in Hollywoodland). It shows that something can be quite beautiful when so eloquently understated. Despair and loneliness (in a capable actor’s hands) can strike you better than any movie with a hundred million dollar budget. The track used also compliments an emptiness to the piece. Watch this film and enjoy. Highly Recommended. Let’s be honest if you don’t like the film, you can always moan at me for wasting 13 minutes of your life. I am looking forward to other Lars Henning films. 4 out of 10.
