Enigmatic codes fill the opening scene of 'Temporary Discomfort'. We Immediately open the short film with Derek as he checks in at a hotel. Our locale for the short is Temporary - Derek does not live here, but there is a purpose behind his visit
Moments later Derek visits his old neighbor and asks ‘how are you?’, and receives no response. He then asks and is granted entrance into a room of someone he once knew, only to lie down.
We aren’t told what the significance of these moments are, but the reality is of their cinematic worth – we are here to decode the film, follow the trail of ideas and pursue the truth. It is this kind of cinematic storytelling which keeps a viewer’s interest: moments which are strung together as pictures rather than a picture book full of dialogue telling us what we should know and understand. The best element of this short is Adegbenro’s self restraint here, the plotting and use of narrative development feed the audience’s craving for information and atmosphere.
