Watch: Offbeat Comedy Short 'You Are Whole' Directed by Laura Spini
"Do you ever suffer from feelings of weariness?" It's time to feature another excellent short film. This one is called You Are Whole, and it's written and directed by Laura Spini, playing at numerous film festivals all over the world before landing online. The short stars well-known actor Fred Melamed as a spiritualist missionary who becomes mistaken for a serial killer in a sleepy British seaside town. This takes a bit to get going, but it's pretty good. The comedy is dark but intelligent and she nailed the casting with Melamed. It's the kind of short that makes you think more than anything. Looking forward to seeing Spini make a feature.

This Fred guy is an amazing character actor who is a few films short of becoming another JK Simmons.

Ok... It was very well done... But you are right... makes you think. I have no idea what I just saw though... is he talking to the audience? Very well done, lighting, cinematography, and acting was superb. A bit confused though.
