 "The Tangent" Review 
Add to favorites

In "La Tangente," a young man (Aurelien Wiik) is washing his car when he encounters a seemingly free-spirited young woman (Sarah Grappin) and offers her a ride to anywhere she wants to go. The two set off without plans and without direction, however, quickly must deal with whether or not their relationship can continue to grow living this free-spirited lifestyle or if, inevitably, they must compromise and settle down.

Beautifully photographed on HD and already a recipient of two film festival awards, "La Tangente" is a well-paced and well acted short film with crisp cinematography from Antoine Monod and a vibrant original soundtrack. While the film feels a touch over-ambitious given its modest 13-minute runtime, director Vincent Vesco keeps it running smoothly and both Grappin and Wiik offer winning performances.
