A strong film coming in at just a minute in length, MILE is an exercise is emotional brevity. Our nameless hero spends the entire film running. And running. And running. No matter how slow, or how many times he has to stop- he keeps going. Until at long last, his mile is reached.
This film has no dialogue, and only one main character. But what is brilliant about it, is that there is nothing more needed to convey the strong sense of character and story. Truly great short films, that can take us on emotional journeys in under a minute are exceedingly rare. Yet MILE accomplishes this with ease. A single note, a single beat in a human’s’ life as the act to better themselves. One mile behind them- a thousand more to go. MILE is a short and wonderful film, simple, clear and worth every step.
