One Hundred Mornings

Slamdance Film Festival

Director: Conor Horgan

Set in Ireland after the utter collapse of modern society, this is the story of two couples surviving in a lakeside cabin, taking on the challenges that present themselves in a world without order.  Exactly the nature of the societal collapse is purposefully ambiguous and entirely unimportant to the plot of One Hundred Mornings—This film is about human nature, characterization, and moral ambiguity. It’s about the subjective nature of good and evil, right and wrong, in a world where simple survival is suddenly the only rational desire left to have. These thematic elements are ambitious, to be sure, and the film is almost always successful in its meditation on the complexities of even the most "straightforward" choices confronting the characters.  The pacing is a bit on the slow side, but the performances are convincing.  I felt inspired when the characters were strong, and empathetic when they were weak.  A solid piece of meditative filmmaking.
