Now You See Me, Now You Don't (2005)

Now You See Me, Now You Don't

Now You See Me, Now You Don't is a short film directed, written and co-produced by Attila Szasz
in Hungary.  The acting, filming and editing are definitely some of the best that I've ever seen in an truly independent film.   In addition, the story is wonderful.  It is not often that an independent  filmmaker manages to create a flawless film, but Attila has done just that with Now You See Me, Now You Don't.  The director of photography, Tamas Kemenyffy, should also be mentioned here because the shots are just incredible.  The composition is amazing and there isn't a wasted frame.  The entire film successfully conveys a lot of weight and emotion.  Everything about this film, right down to the packaging, is done with complete professionalism.  It is rare to find such a completely well made film outside of the major studios.

Now You See Me, Now You Don't is somewhat of a suspense thriller that revolves around a family: Mother, Father and Son.  The entire movie takes place in the family home, but within that small area, it feels like their entire world exists.  There is a visible tension between all of the characters.  It's difficult to write very much about the story itself without giving the movie away, but I can safely say that the story is very clever and well told.  I highly recommend checking out this film!
