The usage of HD video not only pays, but a nice photography results on a wonderful picture. The film uses vivid colors and spaces, a really clear and different vision of Santiago, Chile. The story is very urban, uses this city at its maximum. Note that Santiago is not a giant international metropolis, but a nice city, capital of the small 16 million people country in which I proudly live. It is a city full of different, tiny flavors, and "Play" really succeeds on showing it.
The storyline, though, is quite plain... and, to be honest, boring. Nothing happens, and even with that beautiful look, the movie made me think while watching...
