Myriam, an auxiliary of social life, has been on mission for some days, Mr. Bariani, a seventy-year-old widowed and touched by a heavy handicap. Taking advantage of the weakness of the old man, Myriam adopts a detestable behavior by abusing her.

. “LILY” is a sort of phantasmagoric revenge, treated on an inescapable problem of society: the maltreatment of the elderly or with reduced mobility.
It is by the fantastic genre that the writer and director of the film wanted to deal with this problem of society, which is also a subject of reflection on the place of the individual in our society.

    This is fantastic! I hope your work continues to bring you the success and recognition it deserves. Definitely going on my favorites list (why can’t Americans make movies this good??)

    Loved this. Fantastic that we grow to hate Myriam so quickly, and love how endearing Ovidio is. I truly felt sympathy for his situation, and could tell that something unsettling would happen with Lily. Well done — what I liked even more was how effectively you ended the film, causing us to begin sympathizing with Myriam (and the other care-takers) with a semi-twist ending.

    I think this works very well as a short, however I would be interested to see if (or how) this concept might be expanded to be a bit longer to create a more balanced character in Myriam. Why is she so nasty? It is fine that she’s a greedy character, and it works fantastically for the film, but did something compelling happen that made her this way? I imagine the answer could very well be yes, but that was really the only thing I thought could be improved. Ovidio (and Lily) was shown to be not so pure by the end — which worked fantastically — and I would be curious to see if the same could be done (somewhat) for Myriam.

    Another minor note — the "photo wall" of the trapped caretakers at the end came across as unintentionally comical, which broke the tone for me. I wondered if their faces could’ve been more stoic or brooding, much like Lily in her photos.

    Overall, great work. Brilliant music, good pace, good scares, GREAT lighting and camera work, superb acting. You’ve got a new subscriber.
