- a Film
- by Natasha Cantwell
- Description (english) Cove employs a minimalist narrative to explore social isolation as a product of contemporary city living. Centered on a misguided attempt at a neighbourly gesture, it portrays residents in a small cul-de-sac managing to avoid real interaction despite their geographical closeness. The film’s structure reflects the characters’ self-absorption as the story drifts into their individual worlds and we become lost in their preoccupations with mashed potato, blood and perfecting a homemade bee suit.
