Review of Decrescendo
Tournadeau will be showing this film at the festival! Don’t miss it. This review is provided by Kaiya Breton.
Decrescendo is a film that had me hooked from the very beginning. When I saw the eerie piano
in the middle of a barely lit room I knew I was going to enjoy this. The amount of thought and
time that went into this was amazing. This film went through a girl’s life and hardships she went
through losing her dad. I especially loved the lighting and how it made me feel. The fluorescent
lighting in the beginning and end when she was stuck in that room kept giving me that uneasy
feeling, just as the warm lighting came in when she was having good memories. Even in her
memory when her dad died, you can tell it has cooler undertones to pull the audience in with the
somber moment. Aside from technical lighting, the actress was amazing. I was really
captivated and got pulled into how she was feeling, trapped in a small room as well as her own
head. The emotion she put into her role when she was crying and screaming as well as happy
and overjoyed truly made me feel those emotions with her.
