"Short but sweet" - a review by pearly

Cracker Bag is a great short film. It shows the building excitement of a young girl who is slowly crossing off the days leading up to "cracker night", a night when she goes with her mum and brother to an oval and lets off crackers that she's bought with her saved pocket money.

Eddie, the young girl in question, is played exquisitely by Edith Cattell. She's a girl on a mission, and she does what she needs to so that she can amass more and more crackers.

If I'd managed to pull out something like this with my first writing/directing short film, I'd be pretty pleased with myself.

pearly gives this movie 8 out of 10.

  8. I think Damon is just jealous because he went for the main role himself and didn't get it. No need to attack anyone's skill simply because you have none yourself, thats just nasty.
    He too has not become anything.

    Also no need to criticize the film simply because it wasn't to your taste.
