"Sneeze" Adam Fadra
sSneeze is a cheerful little movie by a student with a good pedigree in animation, his sister Sofia having been one of our stars. Adam takes the fear engendered by bird flu to its obvious conclusion. It has some very nice touches but what I like about it most are the snatches of dialogue - a sort of North Lincolnshire Wallace and Gromit. I wish Adam had done the whole movie like this. He certainly has great talent. The final two thirds of the movie is better than the opening. By the way, Sofia produced this atmospheric piece with her partner Louise Lawrence - Reflections. Perhaps we were not as technically minded then but the girls' intelligence shines through in their treatment of a girl's insecurity.
