This is a sad movie I found on the 'net over at ABDLFourms. It almost had me to tears too, and yet it reminded me of a lot of stories that I have seen peppered around the internet since 2000 when I first came online.
Wow…that was extremely dark and disturbing. It was hard to watch it to the end. While we’ve established this is not one of those “true story” videos, I wonder where this amateur film producer got the idea…perhaps it was “inspired” by real life events. If that’s the case…and shit like this really does take place… Like Chris said…it’s just so damn sad and so hard to imagine how ANY parent could hate their own flesh and blood so much…
Like everyone else….wow! Finally a movie out there that isn’t about sex, or about something along those lines. Wish I knew if this was a “true life” thing or just somebody who is better at making movies then writing stories…but either way, it was very good. Sad…but it’s true…you really have to look at how quickly some people can change, how easy it is to take your anger out on a child, place blame or anything else to someone who can’t fight back.
As far as the movie goes….it’s something I can relate to very well. Though I was never abused to that extent by my mother….I understand all to easily what it’s like to be the blame for your father leaving you, or a little less loved because you look like your father, or have many of the same traits he does. Over the years looking back, I think alot of those reasons that my mother fought with me growing up, her anger and hatred towards me at times….I think that is what led me to being the person I am today. That desire to block it all out and just be a baby again when my parent’s were still together. Maybe it was just all to get me back to the way things were in all the pictures I had of us as a familiy.
After having lost my mother just a little over a year ago now, it’s really made me look back at my relationship with her, and how I’ve tried to realize that the pain my mother and at times my father caused me…is something I never bring into my own childs life. Kudos to who ever made this movie!
What a very sad story. But I wonder how her life went on after she killed her mother. Foster care or adopted, what? How was the rest of her childhood life? Was she treated good by whoever took her into their care?
By the way, the girl has had small roles in a couple of small films, and has an imdb profile. She’s very cute and talented, and I’m suprised she hasn’t done anything bigger. She must have been pretty desparate to wear diapers in such a small film like this.
I did a google search for redemption and ayla judson and saw that it was entered into a movie festival last year.
Since the producer/director only wanted to go into the cause of the girls psychological problems and her redemption, so to speak, he didn’t go into the years between them.
I wish I could talk to Michael bryson, the man behind the movie.
as for the girl, Ayla Judson, I don’t think she was desperate when she took this part. Some actors/actresses take parts in small movies like this for the experience and it is different from what they are used to doing.
Oh good, it’s not just me. I thought it was dripping in pretension and the dialogue was tremendously ham-fisted, overwrought and clichéd. I can forgive the ropey acting and it’s curious to see this kind of subject being covered but this really typified all the bad points of independent film and none of the good. Worthy, I suppose, but not a successful piece of cinema.
Yeah, I definately agree with LittleMatt, more dialouge and actually acting would have definately helped a lot. AS cruel as this sounds, they needed to go into the abuse in more detail, because I didn’t really ever connect with Ayla’s character enough. I mean I felt bad for her, but it wasn’t like I was crying for her. She seems like an amazing young actress, they could have used that a little bit more. All in all, it was a good short film, and i hope it triggers more films with this idea
