Short Movie Review: Late Summer Day (2020) by Nay Wunn Ni

Nay Wunn Ni’s sophomore brief “Late Summer season Day” has a deceptively easy plot. Wutt Yee (Thiri Might Thu) works at a small cellphone retailer in Yangon collectively along with her boyfriend Min Htet (Kaung Sett). She is sad along with her job and needs to use to a greater one instructed to her by a neighbor. It’s the final day of the month and she or he waits for her boss to return, so he pays her and she will inform him that she quits. After work, Min Htet walks her to the bus cease.

The ambiance of the brief matches its title. Watching the characters transfer and converse in a really languid tempo, the modifying by Hsu Lae Nandy doesn’t hurry both. It waits for them, provides them time, whereas Marvin’s camerawork provides them room. We see a variety of the area Wutt Yee and her colleagues occupy with the digital camera solely generally hovering intently to point out essential for the story particulars. Wutt Yee and Min Htet holding arms, their ft stepping aspect by aspect, later, she releasing her hand from his.

The strain and eventual tranquil battle between Wutt Yee and Min Htet that culminates in her releasing her hand from his clasp may also be seen as a need for independence. The younger girl doesn’t need to be managed by him. She needs to make her personal selections and expertise their repercussions, even when she has to endure from them. However he doesn’t perceive that, so he asks their boss to re-hire her when she doesn’t get the brand new job. It’s not the primary time he’s performed that, we study. And doubtless received’t be the final.

Min Htet’s overprotection of Wutt Yee would possibly come from a very good place, it’s, however, suffocating the younger girl. We sense that not by means of phrases or direct motion however by means of Thiri Might Thu’s quiet efficiency. Her character is cautious and aggravated by her boyfriend and that exhibits within the actress’ each motion. She might need a purpose for that, we study in passing, he might need been flirting with different women on-line he tells a colleague.

In a means, we’d even see Wutt Yee’s need to get a brand new job additionally as a means for her to get away from his unduly safety. She is quietly rebelling towards him and probably the patriarchal management of girls he knowingly or unknowingly represents. Within the delicate and tranquil climax, Wutt Yee tells her boyfriend that she is uninterested in being helped. It’s by means of such unassuming phrases that that “Late Summer season Day” and its character present their silent energy.
