My Pretty Pony
Posted: November 4, 2009
An old man talking about time. Doesn’t sound very interesting do it? Well, I agree that it might sound a bit dull but that assumption couldn’t be more wrong when it comes to the Dollar Baby version of My Pretty Pony. I’ll admit that it’s no action movie but if you know what kind of movie it is you won’t be disappointed. It is very nice shoot and Paul Marin is perfect as the old man telling his grandson about time.
Mikhail Tank has made himself a very nice little movie and the set is very cleverly designed so that we only need to see the old man and hear what he has to say. What he says and who he is saying it to is lustrated by the prop in the movie. We know he is talking about the old days and we know that he talks to his grandson.
The movie is about four minutes long and that is just the time the movie need. Should it have been longer it would have required more than just the old man and the prop. As it is now it works fine. With that said we shouldn’t forget that this is a Dollar Baby and if it were done by Hollywood it probably wouldn’t have had been done at all. I think this is a movie best done by someone with the intent of doing a good movie because he likes the story he is telling and not by someone that makes it because he can afford it.
Lilja's final words about My Pretty Pony
I like My Pretty Pony but I would like to give you some advice. If you get the chance, watch it more than once. There are a lot of words spoken in a short time and to fully get it all it’s best to watch it more the once.
