2020-21 Selected press:
“...this offbeat little film is an utter delight, featuring pitch-perfect comedic performances...You Wouldn’t Understand is an unassuming little gem that knows exactly what is...You Wouldn’t Understand was, for me, a festival highlight.”
“Harnetiaux delivers an unexpected piece of ironic other-worldly storytelling, starring two endearing actors who leave a grin on your face. Give us more, please.”
“The film specializes in the strange and at no point takes the action on screen too seriously. It’s silly and ridiculous, yet it remains mesmerizing to the very end. The twist comes out of nowhere. The more You Wouldn’t Understand commits to the sudden sci-fi premise, the more the movie shines as an outright absurdist comedy.”
“9 minutes of sci-fi absurdity is what I Iive for during Fantasia International Film Festival. You Wouldn’t Understand no matter how hard you try. Impeccably shot and hilariously acted, the only thing wrong with it is that it ends!...The film is a true collaboration. Director Trish Harnetiaux, also co-wrote the script with actor Jacob A. Ware, while co-star Anthony Arkin edited the short. No surprise the three formed the production company Steel Drum In Space. Which is a hilarious moniker of its own… for obvious scientific reasons.”
“If Monty Python gets your goat, if great writing is your jam, if superb cinematography gets your engine revved, then You Wouldn’t Understand will make complete sense as a viewing experience."
