THE SUIT WEARETH THE MAN - 29 MINUTES / UK / 2020

Maciej is trying desperately to climb the corporate ladder, hiding both his Polish identity and sexuality at work. When his boss asks him to lead a meeting in his own community, to convince them to leave their housing estate ready for redevelopment, his mother is furious. As Maciej’s conscience begins to get the better of him, will he succumb to his instincts or let his desire for success and power win?

"Marion blurs the worlds of business and horror, playing with elements of conspiracy horror and lust in doing so. Highly stylised and thematically rich, Marion crafts a startling disturbing yet erotic short, packed with ambiguous narrative developments, and a bristling sense of tension as Maciej attempts to cling onto his identity and sanity"  - CULTUREFIX.CO.UK

"A twenty-first century symbolic depiction of untainted greed that Oliver Stone would be proud of, this is a slick and polished short that places the lusts of wealth and those of the flesh counterpoint to one another. With a gorgeous string soundtrack and some crisp art direction, this is a brilliant short that exposes the ugliness at the heart of the wealth pumped into the city of London."  - THEPINKLENS.COM

"Played to the hilt by an engaging cast, there's very little lightness accompanying the dark interaction between the characters. This makes it feel as if a vice is squeezing the central figure mercilessly, hinting at a larger conspiracy that's rather terrifying. Or might it actually turn out to be cathartic? Marion has some important points to make."  - SHADOWSONTHEWALL.CO.UK
