Set in a steampunk world that looks lost to time, with a surrealist throwback to classical silent-film and a touch of film-noir influence, Lolo is a fast-paced adventure unfolding in stylised streets. The story focuses on a character who tries to get a taste of what it is like to live above his social status and amongst the higher classes. Set to a heart pumping score this retro-looking black-and-white film grabs our attention with its daring visual style.

One thought on “Lolo

  1. From the start, as a viewer, you are drawn into this weird and wonderful world of Lolo. The filmmakers manage to comprehensively characterise the lead characters without using a single word, and the actors do a fantastic job of using emotive facial expressions to communicate to the viewer. You grow to love the lead character in such a short time, and are rooting for him to have his one night of fame and fortune. The black and white aesthetic is evocative of old vaudeville/silent films, and brings together the overall feel of the film. Well done to all involved.
