Juanjo Gimenez’s TIMECODE Is A Dancing Masterpiece |Film Review

Juanjo Gimenez’s TIMECODE Is A Dancing Masterpiece which has been selected for a 2017 Academy Award.

Directed by Spanish director Juanjo Gimenez, TIMECODE has a very unique style of film making. The subject chosen for the short film is dance. It is one of those rare short films, which has very little dialogue in it. Instead, the characters interact with each other in written words and movements blended in with emotions. The lead actors Lali Ayguadé and Nicolas Ricchini are dancers in real life which includes Ballet and Contemporary dance. Shortlisted for the 2017 Academy Award, among 9 other short films, it will give a tough time to the other short films in competition.  Juanjo Gimenez’s TIMECODE Is A Dancing Masterpiece |Film Review.

The short film revolves around two security guards. Luna does the day shift and Diego the night ones. An incident brings out the secret of Diego, and Luna decides to share hers with him. Very brilliantly scripted and well executed, with beautiful performances each by Lali Ayguadé and Nicolas Ricchini has enabled the short film to bag in the award of Palme d’Or for the Best Short Film at the 69th Festival de Cannes, France. Finding success at the Festival de Cannes, it has gone on to bag many other prestigious awards from around the world which includes Special Jury Award at the Asiana International Short Film Festival in South Korea, Audience Award at the Rio De Janeiro International Short Film Festival in Brazil and Best European Short Film at the Ghent International Film Festival in Belgium.
