extraordinary and exceptional
26 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This really is an extraordinary and exceptional film. Gritty, real, touching and also incredibly tense and full of suspense. The free flowing nature of the camera-work adds to the already vivid realism, almost docudrama style. As a viewer you are drawn into this impoverished and deprived world, you feel immediate empathy for the central character in her desperate situation. She shows warmth, love and humanity to her children side by side with an appalling judgement about their well-being and safety. She is wonderfully contrasting yet totally believable and genuine.

It's a true eye opener of a film. Certainly one of the best short films I have ever seen. Worth going out of your way too see.
