It's the best independent film that I have seen.

Camera Obscura is the best independent film that I have seen in the past ten years. I enjoyed watching every minute, and every scene of this phenomenal film. For this reason I recommend everybody to see Camera Obscura. Hamlet Sarkissian deserves a big praise for this movie, and I can not wait to see his future films.
