The Troubled Troubadour (음유시인) (Slamdance 2018) - Short Film Review

The Movie: The Troubled Troubadour (음유시인)

The Directors: Sébastien Simon and Forest Ian Etsler

The Cast: Kasuga "Hachi" Hirofumi, Tetsu Kono, Lee Hwajin, Kang Saneh

The Story: An embittered old musician embarks on a journey which becomes the outward manifestation of his inner landscape.

The Review:
The Troubled Troubadour packs a lot into its 23 minute run time as it uses mythology, legend, allegory, and culture to show what a person faces as death becomes more and more of a reality. I like the contrast of having a light hearted to tone while discussing some pretty serious subject matter, otherwise the story would be quite depressing. The directors get everything they can out of every scene with great attention to detail and a creative passion that brings the best out of everyone involved.

The Troubled Troubadour is an official selection of the 2018 Slamdance Film Festival presented by DGA. coverage of the 2018 Slamdance Film Festival presented by DGA.
