The Sheep Thief Reviews:

A young man gets caught stealing a sheep and is shaved of all his hair and branded with a tag on his forehead so that everyone will know that he is a thief and not to be trusted. Dumped in the desert, the thief covers his marking with a headscarf and goes to the nearest village where he is taken in by a trusting family in return for his work. However, has be now changed or is he still the same thief at heart?Continuing my self righteous rant that short movies are not only worth seeing but are a nice method of seeing future talent, comes this short movie that was made by Kapadia a several years before he came to everyone's attention with his critically acclaimed 'The Warrior'. This movie is set in the same sort of India that that was set as well as The Detour, which Kapadia also produced recently. Here we follow a young thief in a storyline that is quite slow and quite unsure of itself – is he trying to begin over, or look for more possibilities to steal? It isn't made fully clear and is quite launch and supports cover the fact that it is slow – it's a bit dull at times but it is thoughtful enough to cover this.The cast are all cute nice and seem natural enough, although I'm not sure if they were all testing themselves or if they were actors brought in. Also the lack of dialogue means that they have less to convince with – perhaps making their task a tiny easier. The direction is nice and the movie feels very professional, looking nice from begin to finish. It may have been a tiny slow and bordering on being dull at one or more mission but generally it is a very atmospheric and professional short movie that has a true sense of zone and time – worth seeing and yet other example of how short movies are everytime worth seeing because you never know where the makers are going to be a several years hence.


"The Sheep Thief" is a 24-minute short movie from the United Kingdom. It was written and directed by Asaf Kapadia back in 1997, which means it will have its 20th anniversary next year. Today, Kapadia is an Academy Award champion and considered one of the greatest documentary makers on the planet these days. I am everytime curious to see what stars have made or appeared in long before their large breakthrough. And in Kapadia's case, it was still live action and no documentary filmmaking, at least in terms of this movie when he was in his 20s. The film deals with foreign cultures and one reason may be the filmmaker's own cultural background. Anyway, I thought this was nothing too interesting to be honest and he had a long method to go to become who he is today, in terms of lvl and awards of course. If you still wish to watch it, and also wish to understand each single word, create sure you receive subtitles. But you really aren't missing much if you skip this one. It never delivers on an emotional or story-telling lvl as it wants to. i give it a thumbs-down.
