Thoughts on Audio Guide

Final Thoughts Audio Guide brings us one of the most thought provoking films you will see, if you could learn somebody’s life story of somebody, the truth about history and even willing to learn your own future. When it comes to short films, the biggest question, is always going to be, could this become a full-feature, the answer here would be yes, easily and become one of the more fascinating movies of the year. The movie does do something clever, by having everything, but the audio being in silent in how Audrey goes about her day, letting actress Emma Wright use her reaction visualize her feelings to each story she learns. Audio Guide is one of the best ideas in a movie you will see this year, one that offers a deeper discussion about life.

Overall: Must Watch Short Film.
