Lunatique Short Film

Gabriel Kalim Mucci‘s Lunatique (2016) short film stars Janaina do Nascimento, Lila Guimarães, Diogo Magal, Paulo Geraissate, and Rony Koren. Lunatique‘s plot synopsis: “Lunatique is a short science fiction film about a lonely woman who struggles daily for survival in a post apocalyptic world.”

The trailer for Lunatique came out last year. The short film has been making the film festival rounds ever since. Now the short film has been released online.

This post-apocalypse film certainly did not go where I thought it would go. What was great about this short film is that the director set up the solitary existence of the protagonist, like Will Smith‘s character in I Am Legend, at the beginning of Lunatique.

The viewer instantly got how much the woman (Lila Guimaraes) wanted to be alive, what she had done, and continued to do, to ensure it.

Lunatique is a great looking and bleak film, like the feature-length film The Divide, except Lunatique doesn’t break its own rules.
