A mischievous young boy learns a lesson
13 March 2006 | by james-1555See all my reviews

This is really funny film about a mischievous young boy named Marco. His life revolves around playing tricks on people, especially those that prove embarrassing. One day he learns that embarrassing people is not all that funny when you are the victim! This brilliant film is made with very little dialogue. The actions of the actors tell the whole story.

Daniel D'Amico was brilliantly cast for this role. His acting was great and combined with that typical mischievous boy look, really brings the character to life.

Another character worth mentioning is the 'nosy neighbour', Mrs Brown, played by Joan Winchester. She really captures the essence of the stereotypical complaining neighbour.

All in all I felt it was a good short film - well worth seeing again.
