Tu le Monde

An outlandish experimental tale about love and heartbreak.
3/5

Review

Nathan Blackburn’s experimental short film is a wild and symbolically rich exploration of romantic relationships, betrayal, and falling out of love. The narrative centres around the central character, who falls in love with his toilet – a relationship that quickly fades. The unconventional storyline is eccentric and comical, and viewers may be perplexed by the symbolism employed, but the substance of the story becomes more apparent through the narrative voiceover.

Filmed in black and white and set entirely in the confines of a small toilet, the film creates a sense of claustrophobia and confinement that underscores the character’s emotional turmoil. The cinematography is neatly crafted, and Blackburn’s direction allows for a sense of progression to the story.

While the film’s content and imagery may be unsettling for some viewers, it is undeniable that Blackburn’s filmmaking style is unique and thought-provoking. This piece draws from familiar elements of storytelling but subverts them through outlandish and absurd characterization.

Overall, this short film is a little odd and not for everyone. Still, it will hold a resonance and appreciation for cinema lovers who appreciate the metaphorical and artistic message in an original storyline. Blackburn has created something that takes risks, pushing the boundaries of traditional storytelling. The use of the French language heightens the abstract presentation, breathing a further layer of texture to the production.
