We have all asked ourselves who the superheroes are in this world. A plausible answer is to be found in Mathieu Lalande‘s 2012 short film: Who Are The Superheroes?
A simple yet sweet and heartwarming story about first love, the film relates the story of twelve-year-old Melvin (Oscar Le Potollec Fiorani) who has to gather the strength and courage of his favorite comic’s superheroes to confess his sympathy towards his beautiful classmate Sarah (Emma Ninucci).
The funny comic’s stylish montages and split screen cinematography delivers a unique feel of aesthetics bringing dynacism to the story. As result Mathieu Lalande’s film manages to both engage and entertain its audience.
Both Oscar Le Potollec Fiorani and Emma Ninucci deliver great performances characterized by adorable smiles and a very credible portrayal of their characters, so much so that associating with their feelings comes naturally and many will remember with nostalgia a similar event in their own lives.
The entire short film with English subtitles is available at the web page of its distributing company Buffalocorp.
