Pots N' Tots

comedy · Short Films

At first glance, it is easy to choose comedy as a suitable category for the film since humour does come across as an overarching entity in the narrative. However, give it a few more moments, and you soon realise the folly. It is a romance, yes, but one which is surreal in nature, it is embellished with mystery, intrigue, foreboding, echoes of fantasy and an experimental approach to share its story.

The biggest success of Tots N' Pots lies in managing to intertwine all of these elements in a seamless manner. The effortlessness of the plot is further enhanced by an appropriate choice of actors that bring their performance to the screen with notable ease, ensuring that the viewer has no other choice, but to be fully convinced of their reality and emotions.

Another noteworthy aspect is, of course, the story. Two lovers are fellow ceramicists at a facility where they find themselves being pulled in opposite direction by their seniors. Their contrasting approach to the course of event comes to voice the apprehension of the viewer as well. However, while they may be navigating the uncertainty of their career and relationship, what will their fate truly be?
