This short film on domestic violence really shows how manipulative domestic violence can be. The short film has no soundtrack only diagetic sounds of the man speaking and the women crying because there is no soundtrack I think this adds to the threatening theme of the film and makes it feel more real.
The mise en scene of the short film is also very powerfull. The fact that there is quite an empty set and all the audience can see in the shot is just the girl,the man and the the black tape around the girls mouth adds to the scary feeling.
The opening shot is a medium shot of just the males face. He looks upset and in pain. At first the audience may feel sorry for the man which lures the audience into a false sence of security.
