My thoughts… A dame to kill for! No Ordinary Love is a well-done tribute to Frank Miller’s neo-noir graphic novel Sin City; and, even more so, to Robert Rodriguez’s stylish 2005 film adaptation. This short film is dark, gritty and cool! Finland-based filmmaker Tuomas Hautamäki says that No Ordinary Love is “an independent, very low budget film, shot in four days.” Impressive! Oh, and the Rodriguez-esque original soundtrack is fantastic – especially the track that plays over the end credits! Listen to the entire score (here)! Now, I’m very excited for Hautamäki’s upcoming short film Night Out. Watch the first teaser here …
