Lucy’s List

johnboy 14 May 2007 10

Another locally produced short film has made it’s what onto YouTube and from thence to here. This one is Lucy’s List by Andrew Babbington, starring Jess Camilleri. It was entered in the Short Seasons film festival.

Here’s the accompanying blurb:

Welcome to Lucy’s world. It’s one not indifferent to that of your own. She is a normal girl with normal everyday routines. A routine to which she keeps a list. Yet, this list is different; this list is beyond everyday thoughts and imaginings however simple it may first perceive.

I would have much prefered if the last thing on the list was deicide – and she started headbanging to one of americas finest deathmetal bands !!

At least I would know how to associate with the subject.

“Decide”. Decide what? All this tension building up and then all she plans to do at the end of the day is decide. Like Lucy, we all do that every day and not only once a day, to our own script. Deciding is no big deal, particularly when you realise that not deciding is a decision too.

I don’t get it…… How does it end…….

The piano inspired soundtrack was mournful.

I thought it was a flat performance at first from the mother, but I’m not sure the disjointed sense of disconnect wasn’t intended.

Yes the mum’s performance was a tad flat

Yeah I don’t get it.
WMC: on the blurb, it’s like putting a sentence through Babelfish into another language and then back again to see what you get, isn’t it…?
Script reading from the mum was ordinary…

Here’s the accompanying blurb:

To which it’s one not indifferent to a first perceived mangled Google translation by.

I was really expecting a suicide at the end or at least a bottle of pills to go along with the last list item. Seemed very much as if she was saying goodby.
