A story about human nature. Two characters depict their soul and personality on the prelude of a deal. 1989 shows the tragedy of violence, not as an act, but as a never ending spiral of short repeated stories.

So first of all: In general I am a big fan of low-budget and small films. I think thats where the real passion is.
And Metroia really was a one-man-thing. At least that what I took from it. So there is a pretty impressive achievement here. No doubt. I respect that. I like that.
So it kinda hurts me that I have to say that Metropia would have been a better short film then a feature. It sometimes just dragged. And not in a moody or artistic way (dont worry, I am all in for Tarkovsky and Co) but just with spans of scenes that are not interesting. You can argue that a certain kind of monotony helps you understand the character better. I guess thats correct. But there was still a little underwhelming taste in the end.
