Nightingale (short) review

Jasper De Bruin’s short Nightingale is an exercise in mood building in a vulnerable setting.

We follow a nurse on a nightshift and as the night draws on things started to get stranger and stranger.

Nightingale feels like German expressionist cinema with its slow and deliberate takes before jolting us with moments of vicious violence.

While its conclusion may be slightly ambiguous, it certainly makes it no less haunting.

Nightingale screened as part of Soho Horror Film Festival’s Shockdown Saturdays.
