Film Review: Timecode
Share This Article:
Juanjo Giménez's Academy Award-nominated short proves to be a rare treat in the art of cunningly composed visual storytelling. Uniqueness is a concept that grows increasingly barren in the more forthright and readily accessible facets of the film industry, year on year.

Set to a beautifully understated recurring acoustic score by Iván Céster, the film depicts the typically bleak working lives of two car park security guards; Luna and Diego. With an establishing shot as ostensibly ambiguous as its title, it comes across consummately reserved in its approach to their combined narrative throughout the majority of its duration.
