A ten year old boy is sitting on the edge of a balcony on the fourth floor. Neighbors and passers-by, terrified by this situation, call the police and firefighters for help. But the situation quickly becomes unmanageable. BALCONY is an observation of the authentic mindset of our society, which quickly may deviate into an absurd situation. Shot in one long sequence that begins in the sunset and ends at twilight, as a cinematic expression that reinforces immersion into an absurd situation, revealing the reality of everyday life.

I really enjoyed this one. It shows a great study in human drama. Nothing attracts a crowd...like a crowd. And WHERE the drama begins and ends differs greatly. It STARTS on the balcony but soon moves to within the crowd. Great story all told in 20 minutes. Bravo!!!!!

An entertain vignette of how something small can change the dynamic of an otherwise typical day. The way it was filmed made you feel like you were just part of the crowd, which I thought was rather cleverly done.
