Kostas Gerampinis hasn’t made a full-length feature as of yet, but this short proves that he has strong storytelling skills, an eye for powerful visuals and confidence beyond his experience.
When a veterinarian is called in to treat a mysterious disease in a remote farm in Greece, he determines that all of the animals on the farm must be put to death to keep any chance of an infectious disease outbreak to a minimum. The farmer argues that no one will compensate him for his troubles, but then a storm breaks out, leaving the animal doctor no choice but to spend the night.
Between the visuals and the score, this seems like it’s ready to be a full-length film. It kept my attention the entire way and I kept looking at the clock. Usually, that happens when a movie bores me. With this, I was hoping that it would play longer.
