Review: Diane Russet’s “Storm” Is One Short Film You Should Watch
A few weeks ago, Diane Russet took to Instagram promoting her newest work titled “Storm”. Prior to this film, the Kaduna State beauty has produced two other short films titled “The Therapist” and “Bayi.”.
Her fans couldn’t wait for the video to premiere on YouTube and when it did, Diane proved that she is a filmmaker Nigerians should watch out for.
“Storm” is a beautiful love story, showing us how we find love in the strangest place. The film kicks off with “Attah” played by Diane Russet calling the office line of a food outlet.
The call comes in very late at night and it is attended to by Daniel Etim Effiong who introduces himself as “Storm”. Attah is angry with the poor service as she had ordered the meal hours ago.
Storm tries to pacify and assures her that her meal will be delivered by another dispatch rider as the actual rider was involved in an accident. Unknown to Attah, Storm personally delivers the meal to her doorstep.
Attah calls the next day to thank Storm for the way he handled things the previous night and they strike a friendship. They talk on the phone for hours daily until Attah suggests that they meet. On the day of their date, Storm receives a text from a mysterious lady. She demands that he meets up with her immediately. Attah is unable to reach his number. She then decides to go to the restaurant to inquire of his whereabouts and there she finds out he is the owner of the outlet.
