It’s true that it’s human to make mistakes and it can happen to anyone; but if you’re a young orchestra cellist, and you’re assigned an important solo, the smallest mistake can open the doors to obsession, panic and paranoia. That’s what happens to the protagonist of the tense short film of Charlotte Scott Wilson, who takes us in the girl’s nightmare, with a hallucinated hyperrealism, not far from the horror aesthetic, where the melodies’ sweetness and beauty contrast with the darkness of the feelings.
