Review: Swing, a short film by Natacha Horn

This dark comedy about abuse is brilliantly moving.


Published:

 

Swing is a searingly beautiful dark comedy about abuse and the often pernicious ways that it presents itself in our lives, from job interviews to romantic relationships.

 

Told through a series of vignettes, Horn's short film is deft, exposing, and deeply moving. From the captivating "sexual encounter" to the melancholic "birthday cake", these stories are intense and often troubling, but told with light and subtly and brilliance.

 

This is a film that will stay with you long after the credits roll. 

 

Swing is the debut short film from Belgian-born multi-media artist Natacha Horn. You can see her work at natachahorn.com and find out more about Swing at festivalformula.com/film/swing and on Twitter @SWING_shortfilm.
