“The Narrow World is the story of a gigantic alien that crashes to Earth and takes up residence in Los Angeles. Contrary to expectations, when the alien is neither hostile towards the tiny humans around it, nor communicative in any way, it falls on the populace to decipher what, exactly, this visitor wants and what it means for them. One man sees more to it – a message, perhaps, that may tell us less about the alien, and more about our deepest inner selves, about the mysteries of the soul.”
Well worth the watch I say. With a budget of $15000 its a damn fine short film.There is an obvious similarity to last years Arrival starring Amy Adams, as both films center on the theme of how humans deal with the arrival of aliens. At any rate I’ll be keeping an eye out for Bonacorso´s work going forward. His feature film debut You Get Me has completed filming, but I have not found any release date for it. Stay tuned.
