PVC 1 Raises the bar for all filmmakers.
1 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

PVC 1 will most definitely open new doors for filmmakers all around the world. The director's phenomenal approach to this suspenseful and intense, clock ticking story while still taking the time to capture the warmth and the love of his characters is bewildering.

This true story is genuinely exposed of all its various human elements that surface in a moment of tribulation. These fundamental reductions of a human being are captured in real time for 87mins. The concept of time ticks over you louder and the suspense felt deeper than you have ever felt in a film.

I was truly captivated and left in awe. One film I will remember.
