2081 () Short Film

It depicts a dystopian future in which, thanks to the 212th Amendment to the Constitution and the unceasing vigilance of the United States Handicapper General, everyone is "finally equal". The strong wear weights, the beautiful wear masks and the intelligent wear earpieces that fire off loud noises to keep them from taking unfair advantage of their brains. It is a poetic tale of triumph and tragedy about a broken family, a brutal government, and an act of defiance that changes everything.

I suppose that one day, ballet will save the common man from the stifling grip of an Orwellian government. But not in 2081. Now wash your dishes, smartypants.

A fine film making, solid story and good cinematography and acting. The story works better as written, I think. One thing bothered me a lot during movie: too much and too long time close ups. Like that the story did not open as good as it should.

I normally try to separate the film and the source but it was hard here because it felt like the tone was completely wrong. "Harrison Bergeron", while containing a serious message, is a much more whimsical and comical story. This film however plays up the dystopian elements and even when they keep the jokes, they fall flat due to the serious tone. It stretches for too long when the suddenness and brevity of the story is what makes it work. Although the woman who plays the mother is perfect.

The idea behind it is interesting and, for a short, it has good production values. However it tries to accomplish too much with too little and it ends up being rather unconvincing.

It's well made but instantly forgotten. Just as with 'Harrison Bergeron', the silly premise undermines the message.

Even though "levelling" and the threat to exceptionality is a not insignificant theme (although this operates mainly via a kind of voluntary servitude as much as through any direct oppression organized by governments), this short film manages to undermine its "message" due to its overly-portentous tone and (un-Vonnegutian) lack of irony.

Lacks some coherence and too ambitious for its own good, but definitely well made and rather engaging. A solid short.
