A Clever Short Film That Plays the Same Backward and Forward

Symmetry Short Film

Why Watch? There’s a hint of Eric Rohmer in this poetic short from Yann Pineill where a young man leaves his girlfriend to spend time with another woman, but the cleverness in executing the gimmick of a movie that truly is symmetrical is unmistakable.

What Will It Cost? About 4 minutes plus 4 minutes.
