Storyline

John, lives in a remote area of Scotland. The primary industry is potato farming and John is a picker who lives for the harvests; it is all he has in his life. He yearns for a life that he does not know how to make for himself - a home and family. John exhibits all the signs of someone who has suffered unknown tragedies in his life, but those reasons are hidden from the viewer. While driving back to town on a dark and isolated road, John comes upon a car stopped up ahead. He immediately can see a hose attached to the exhaust pipe. He has come upon a suicide. Suddenly, headlights appear in the opposite direction and John's immediate reaction is to hide, though he has done nothing wrong. That choice leads John to take the body of the dead young woman to a shed in the woods. Written by CarpenterB

The quest for intimacy
29 June 2011 | by metalmistress_85See all my reviews

Scott Graham's film packs in its small duration a tremendous lot of substance. Be not deterred by the 19 minute short-film because the director made sure every single second counts in his depiction of the need for intimacy.

In a small village, a potato farmer named John suffocates in his redundant and ultimately empty daily activities. As he goes about his duties one night, an encounter with a woman's dead body changes him. With her corps, he experiences intimacy as he never had and lives to suffer the consequences.

Graham takes his time in emphasizing every touch, gaze, movement between John and his dead beloved, bordering on the grotesque. And yet, irrelevant of its obscenity, the character and the incident become more and more metaphoric. The rough environment John lives in contrasts beautifully with the softness of his private moments and the hardships of his work are mirrored in his inner world as well...

These 19 minutes personally blew me away. They seem to translate either a feeling of unilateral affection and desire or a deep unintelligible necrophiliac fantasy. Regardless of the interpretation, Who is Scott Graham (I later answered this of course) and when is he releasing another film?
