I’ll Be Here All Night is a nine-minute short from writer/director Andrew Parkhill, concerning itself with a pub singers’ both personal and professional problems which all seem to coalesce at the hands of a man who initally appears to be a force for good, at least when handling hecklers.
Well-intentioned though he may be, however, it appears that he may just end up doing more harm than good. With some excellent performances and subtle attention to detail, this is was an absolute joy to see and the decision to keep the length of the project down to a minimum helped it achieve a good deal of the plaudits. In and out. Then off.
An accomplished and simple piece of work that ended the programme on a suitable and deserved high.
I'll Be Here All Night is screening:
- Portobello Film Festival Video Cafe on Sunday 14th Sept
- Comedy Cluj International Film Festival, 10 and 19th of October in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, the historical region of Transylvania.
