Desire on a Fall Afternoon is set on a dreary afternoon. A girl arrives at the apartment, where she meets the mom of the boy she’ll be baby-sitting for the day. She’s led to meet the paralyzed guy in the wheelchair, and is left to look after him. Meaningful glances are exchanged, and an aching desire may just be acted upon.
This film is pretty interesting. It’s simple, yet each shadow and movement help to give it depth. The movie doesn’t even feel like 6 minutes, not when the longing and lingering feel much more intimate, much longer than that. I felt a little sad after this, but really, that caged bird provided quite a message from the start.
