Natalia de Molina,
When two brothers organize the robbery of their parents' jewelry store the job goes horribly wrong, triggering a series of events that sends them, their father and one brother's wife hurtling towards a shattering climax.
Philip Seymour Hoffman,
The story of two men on different sides of a prison riot -- the inmate leading the rebellion and the young guard trapped in the revolt, who poses as a prisoner in a desperate attempt to survive the ordeal.
One of, and possibly, the best short film I've ever had the chance to watch.
Wonderful direction, and great sense of suspense. The very gritty cinematography only adds to the realism of the narrative. Reminds me of such masterpieces as Pan's Labyrinth and the Spirit of the Beehive, in which child protagonists are forced to endure and survive the hardships that come with a war they do not yet understand. I caught this gem at a local festival that I almost decided to pass up on. Thank god I didn't.
Do NOT miss this. You will not regret watching it.
Best 8 minutes of my entire life.
