In a story that plays out entirely on a teenager’s computer screen, Noah follows its eponymous protagonist as his relationship takes a rapid turn for the worse in this fascinating study of behaviour (and romance) in the digital age.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this short film. I was a bit skeptical at first but Patrick Cederberg, writer and director, did a great job of pulling all the little pieces together and allowing you to engage with the characters. According to his YouTube page he is a 22 year-old music-maker/film student/animator from Toronto, Ontario.

The film was viewed at the Toronto International Film Festival, which just ended, in the special events – student film showcase. Cederberg does a really good job of mixing in young love and comic relief which makes the film, even at 17 minutes, feel like just the right length.

All in all I’d give it a 4 out of 5 stars. Leave a comment and let us know if what you thought of not only the film but the concept as well.
