(This is The Neighbor’s Window short film review, which is a short film that deals with our perceptions of greener pastures)

Have you ever wondered if your neighbours have a better life that you from the outside? That is exactly the premise of The Neighbors’ Window told mostly through the point of view of windows peeping (sort of)

It is directed by the award-winning Marshall Curry, and starred Maria Dizzia, Greg Keller and Juliana Canfield. Let’s delve down into The Neighbor’s Window short film review below to find out if it’s any good!

 

Premise

When a wife who is now currently having to deal with 3 kids and a rather normal husband got to see through the neighbour’s window opposite hers, she started to get a bit envious of them. However, what could be the truth behind such facade?

Premise

The premise itself will not win any originality as it’s a story that’s been told since decades ago and has appeared in some forms over different films. Neither will this film shock you with an unexpected twist. What it will do is just telling a story that’s relatable to you in a way that is non-exaggerated. You won’t find any dramatic or big emotional moments here.

Hmmm nice show

 

The film focuses on showing normal characters living through their lives normally. Even the ending or the twist itself is pretty predictable. However, this film is able to make me keep watching it because you can relate to the characters so much more without the extra dramatisation factor that Hollywood overtly employs almost every single time. What’s more, it’s based on a true story as well!

Pacing

Pacing is pretty decent and the film knows how to take it slow yet steady. It is fast enough not to ensure boredom and slow enough for you to feel the pace of time flowing in the film.

 

Characters

An envious normal husband and wife

 

The characters themselves are normal people that you will encounter everyday. The husband and wife interacting with the kids and the opposite neighbours’ activities are also shown in a very natural way. There’s not much acting performances that I will praise here, for the film depends more so on the pacing and the premise to bring across a moral lesson. Although the acting are not top notch, the whole package including the premise gives a feeling of contentment. And that each character represents us in some ways and you will feel that you might be doing the same thing as them if you were in that situation.

Soundtrack

Soundtrack is pretty chill with some pop and slow paced music which are appropriate for the movie.
