We will come out and say it from the beginning:'The Perfect Day' is the movie with THE attitude! It is by far the best movie to watch when you feel life is not what you would expect it to be.
The story is catchy: David has the most important day of his life in front of him. He may sign a 10 million dollar contract with a Japanese company, and it is a matter of all or nothing. But, will the deal go as he expects?
The movie follows the two possible situations one may experience: first, it is the perfect one, where everything goes right and even more than that; whereas the second one is the opposite - everything falls apart and David finds himself on thin ice.
The cinematography of Ignacio Redondo’s 'The Perfect Day' is very good, with very few flaws. The lightning, the shadows, the edit, everything seems right, making this short the perfect thing to watch in your coffee break. The acting is good – David, the main character fits perfectly in both the situations presented. The amazing part about this short is the ending - nothing you would expect happens in the last 10-15 seconds of the short, but when you see it, it is like a relief. The score is good, adequate for this subject, blending with the action in progress and making it easy-going. To be honest, as the action goes, being so versatile, this subject can be transformed in a lot of things. It is not hard to imagine it as a musical or a thriller. Nothing more than some visual effects and you are good to go.
Even if it may look like a motivational video in the first place, it is not anything like that. 'The Perfect Day' is the story of a man trapped between two main possibilities that can change your life in one way or another.
