...And immediately, as predictable as clockwork, we get the stereotype of the father as stupid and abusive. Yawn! Yawn! You know, do these directors realise that boys will grow up to be men and fathers themselves? Boys and men aren't two separate species. You denigrate men, you attack boys as well. Of course, some men are stupid and violent - but the point is that the presentation of the father as Neanderthal in this film serves no purpose at all in the film's narrative. It is simply a stereotypical image from our culture that the director has thoughtlessly grabbed. The narrative itself is pedestrian and unimaginative. It is also a little absurd for the director to present the make-believe and fantasy life of children as somehow dangerous. It's called imagination - children are especially imbued with it, and maybe the director could learn from this characteristic rather than implausibly suggest that it might lead to one's parents being killed by unseen predators (Lord, give me strength!). For a contrasting short film, I would suggest "4000 Steps" (2010), also in this database.
