On a weekend away, a newly-formed couple are forced to face the unknown in their lives when a mysterious woman arrives at their secluded campsite.
Tim Marshall’s Gorilla will leave you saying ‘Whaa….?’ and trying to resist the urge to watch it again, just in case you missed something the first time round. It’s offbeat, silly and completely weird in a way that will either charm you to your core or leave you a little cold and confused. A nice effort, perhaps a surprising choice for Best Short Film 2013 considering the strength of some of the talent on show this year, but either way, it’s well made; the “gorilla” choreography is nicely done; and the tension between the three actors is so genuine you can almost taste it.
