First Impressions | 2008

A short film about judgment, perception and our understanding of events when given only a limited part of the picture. The story of a tropical wedding unfolds by means of a fractured narrative. But it seems that there is trouble brewing in paradise and not everyone intends to honor their vows. The situation quickly becomes tense and Marisa makes plans to leave. All the while the potential for events to turn violent increases. But all is not as it first appears: from where comes the threat and to whom can Marisa turn for help?

Fiction. Color. 35mm. 12 minutes. French, English, Spanish, Thai.
Written and directed by Nigel Bennet. Produced by Le Standard and Cinemasia for Canal+, France/Thailand.
