A captivating film, that don't get the chance to captivate as many people as it should!
26 July 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

"The Big Picture" is a very rare short film. I was watching TV and suddenly this film came on. I thought that it deserves a chance even though it was a short film and I have never heard about the film nor the directors before. Then when the film started and the main characters future was revealed more and more I was totally captivated by it. I had not seen anything like it, of course the style is not what is unique but how the plot plays out. And then came the end. What an amazing way to end this film. It is the ending that makes the whole film and even though it is a short film you still get attached to the character and moved by her future. After the film was over, the end raised a lot of questions in my mind, but I found myself loving the film, the end and life itself.
