Gripping Film!!
30 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

PVC-1 is one of the most influential films i've seen all year. You can't take your eyes of the screen for one second. The brilliant camera work and directing, is complimented by outstanding acting and a sound script. This is a movie not to be missed. It succeeds in pulling you into a true story that deserves such a telling. If only every film in Hollywood had a film maker who could do justice in such a gripping fashion.

If you haven't seen this film yet, you're missing out!! Trust me you won't be disappointed!

GO SEE P.V.C-1!!
