The Girl is Mime – Starring Martin Freeman

Clive Buckle is in trouble. His wife has been murdered and he is the prime suspect.  As he is interrogated by the police memories return to Clive of his relationship with this wife: how they met and fell in love but then how, one day, she changed.  The police can’t prove anything until they find a weapon but what makes this interrogation different is that Clive is a mime artist. Did the mime commit the crime?

Starring Martin Freeman, who plays Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit not to mention Dr John Watson in BBC’s Sherlock, The Girl is Mime was created for the London 48 Hour Film Project in 2010.  Directed by Tim Bunn who wants to work for a Hollywood producer who always wears a suit and is constantly smoking a cigar (honestly) this little gem is more proof (if you need it) that independent film making is alive and kicking and possibly entering a golden age.
