Entropy

A poetic tale of love, heartbreak and loss.
5/5

Review

Matan Portnoy’s experimental short film about love and heartbreak is a beautiful and moving work of art. The film stars Eran Ivgy and Inbal Erez as lovers who experience the highs and lows of a passionate relationship which ultimately ends in heartbreak. Using symbolism through colors, Portnoy conveys the tone of the film effectively, with the use of red, amber and blue to convey romance and pain, energy, and depression and freedom.

In one of the most poignant scenes, Ivgy’s character is seen rinsing laundry on a rooftop, attempting to cleanse himself of the pain of a failed relationship, a powerful metaphor for letting go of the past and moving on.

The acting is superb, and the lack of dialogue adds to the sombre tone of the film. Portnoy’s direction is masterful, utilizing Tom Riechart’s cinematography to create a beautifully poetic and well-crafted short. The film successfully tackles the universal theme of love and the pain of heartbreak, making it relatable to audiences everywhere.

Overall, this Israeli short film is a must-watch for anyone who appreciates great storytelling and beautiful visual artistry. It’s a powerful exploration of human emotions that will leave audiences deeply moved and thinking about the film long after it’s over.
