Dir. Viko Nikci. Ireland, 2018. 90 mins
“A woman searches for a baby she may or may not have had and who may or may not have been taken away from her in Viko Nikci’s (Coming Home) intense film. As the heroine struggles to make sense of her past by repeatedly re-visiting it, audiences may also have a sense of Memento-like déjà vu. Reflecting the turmoil of the dogged Aidie (Karen Hassan), Cellar Door is a restless film without sufficient anchor until it’s too late. With its committed performances and air of enigma, this is fertile terrain for a short film, but one which comes aground at feature length” says Fionnuala Halligan.
