An outstandingly excellent piece of short-story telling, benefitting from the compression effect that can only be achieved by a shorter rather than a longer narrative.

Audience Reviews for Wasp

Really good short film. This was included on the UK release of Fish Tank, so I was curious to see something else by the same person who directed that. Also pretty gritty and follows a single mum living in a housing estate with her four young kids. Similar themes of desperation, and really well acted. I only wish it was longer so I could have seen what happened after the pair got home!

This short is on the Red Road DVD. The feature drags a bit, but is worth renting just for this short, I would say!
