The Escape (2013) – By Philip Smolen

“The Escape” is a five minute promotional short by Italian filmmakers Allesandro DeVivo and Ivano di Natale. In the film, a Cyborg (Massimo de Matteo) flees from a man (a bounty hunter?) who is determined to kill him. He returns to a past time and confronts the mysterious man who sent him on his mission.

This is a cool trailer that mostly consists of a chase as de Matteo does his best to escape from his pursuer (also played by de Matteo!). The photography is excellent and the short boasts good production values. But since it is a concept for a feature film, it leaves far more questions than it answers. But the short is intriguing and it does whet your appetite to see a more complete vision. Here’s hoping DeVivo and Natale succeed in securing financing for this feature.
