Discontinuity2016

  • 3.4
Tabitha and Stephen have been in each other's lives for a long time but because of their jobs they must periodically live apart. When Tabitha returns "home" after their longest separation, what they've been missing becomes opaquely clear and who they're becoming makes it hard for them to see each other. As the interruptions and incongruities pile up, DISCONTINUITY mirrors the missed connections in its characters' reunion with its approach to editing, its confusion of time and space (and a free wheelin' clowder of cats). DISCONTINUITY highlights the irregular spaces and unexpected fissures that can pop-up between us and all of the things that can fall in and get lost.

In a very short space of time, the director is able to capture so very realistically the subtle lapses in communications that can exist between a couple, in this case two young people who live apart at times due to their jobs. The woman has just returned from attending her father’s funeral and the two subsequently attempt to “reassemble” their life together. I am always amazed at how a short film such as this one can be so effective in creating a vivid slice of life.

Discontinuity is excellent. It's touching, I laughed, and for a stretch it gave me the creeps. I like it.

creepy and touching all at the same time, but not in a pervy uncle sort of way. great performance by a cat

If the synopsis doesn't already pull you in, skip it.
