“A morbid yet classy take on a morbid classic.”
— David Fincher (Fight Club, Gone Girl)
“Beautiful. Deliberate and creepy as hell.”
— Scott Frank (Out Of Sight, Godless)
Winner: Melies d’Argent, Abertoir Film Festival
A city broker hires a rough builder to renovate his wine cellar, but the classes inevitably clash…
My first shot at filmmaking, after years as a journalist, and mercifully enjoyable (at least to make). The film got great reviews, although it was The Playlist who sounded most like I’d paid them. “It’s not every day that a filmmaker like David Fincher shouts out a short film, but then again, it’s not every day that a director like Neville Pierce comes along.”
