A great short film.
2 August 2006 | by (Rome, Italy) – See all my reviews

I've seen this film at the 2006 Roma Independent Film Festival and I have nothing but great things to say about it. The film is marvelously executed. I loved the story, the characters and I was impressed by the beautiful images and the moving soundtrack. The way the film combines the western with the modern-day baseball game is brilliant. I was really surprised by the ending and how everything links together. I also love the choice of the actors. I really believe they truly impersonate their characters well. I particularly like the performance of Michael Kirkhart (who plays the bad guy in the west). He has a terrific presence on the screen even though he does not have any lines in the film. I'm definitely looking forward for the DVD and any future work by these filmmakers. Very entertaining. Highly recommended!

Ciao, minu_1
