4/5

Review

‘Breathe’ by Abby Meaux is a hauntingly powerful experimental drama that explores the debilitating effects of anxiety and panic attacks. The 3-minute film is entirely constructed of still images, accompanied by a powerful and evocative audio soundtrack that plays a pivotal role in conveying the increasing tension.

The film follows the central character played by Emma Richardson, a young woman experiencing a panic attack while at work. The still images used throughout the film magnify the feeling of being stuck and highlight the character’s fear and isolation, as she tries to calm herself down in the midst of an anxiety attack. Richardson delivers a moving and authentic performance that gives viewers insight into the experience of living with anxiety.

The sound design of the film is one of the standout elements, with the use of ambient noise heightening the sense of impending dread and anxiety. There’s an overwhelming sense of unease that permeates every frame, making ‘Breathe’ a deeply immersive and affecting film.

Overall, ‘Breathe’ is an incredibly powerful and thought-provoking film that shines a light on an important and often emotional subject matter. The director’s skillful use of still images and sound creates a truly unique and innovative viewing experience that will leave a lasting impression on anyone who watches it. Highly recommended.
