The String Puppet

A personal fave from the 2008 Berlin Film Festival. Check it out.


There’s something about this short that stings me in a good way. The first time I saw it, I was honestly surprised and the short film format is the perfect way to work that angle. Quick, yet lulling; playful, while startling.

Directed by Swiss first-timer Alexander Frank, I can’t seem to dig up any more recent film work by him. Let’s hope this is only because he is hard at work on his next picture. I remain intrigued…
