THE MUSE (2014) Starring Ben Whishaw.
Directed by Tim Walker.
Written by Simone Glover, Mia Bays and Tim Walker
“The obsession of an artist for his muse and what becomes of him when she is gone, forms the theme of this visually-stunning short film from fashion photographer Tim Walker. It draws upon the mythology of the mermaid and the idea that if a man falls in love with such a being, she can grow legs, but this also means that she has the capacity to flee from the man who transformed her.” Aesthetica Short Film Festival.
“A captivating film…a place where time stops and dreaming begins.” I-D
“Provocative and powerful, The Muse is an entrancing film about being entranced.” Vodzilla
“Eloquent voiceover is more like a wash of poetry than a driving feed of information. Graceful and dream-like, this highly accomplished and impactful short will please art-house film lovers and mainstream Whishaw fans alike.” Front Row Reviews
