Watch: Hilarious, Sweet Kiwi Comedy Short Film 'Ten Thousand Days'
True Love Never Dies… This might just be the perfect short film to watch this fine, incredibly hot summer week. I was tipped to check out a short film called Ten Thousand Days from New Zealand, a hilarious but sweet story of love and death directed by Michael Duignan. I love the look and style of this, it has a quirky Wes Anderson vibe with Tarantino-esque style, but more than anything the story is just perfect. There are so many laugh out loud lines and sweet moments that will make you smile and think back on your own life and the many experiences that have made it so memorable. Worth watching. "Tell them… I danced on the edge!"
Short synopsis via Vimeo: Darby Duncan is convinced he will die on his Ten Thousandth Day. But when he meets Arabella at the funeral of his cousin, things don't quite go to plan. Ten Thousand Days is written & directed by up-and-coming Kiwi filmmaker Michael Duignan, starring Morgana O'Reilly as Arabella & Benedict Wall as Darby Duncan. The short film premiered at New Zealand International Film Festival in 2012 and also played at the Seattle Film Festival this year. For more info on the short, visit their Facebook page or check out Duignan's official site. I'm glad I watched this short. What did you think of the film?
