not bad
25 March 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

it can be version of a common story. or only drawing of social problems. it can be part of a long chain about search of life sense by young people. but, in fact, it represents only a window. not clean, not open. only frame for a sad picture. it is not great or special. only a honest exercise to present few characters in a strange world. only consolation - the love. like in many films - key of freedom, heart of existence. so, two actors makes an interesting and nice work. a film far to be beautiful or impressive but, like an ash ball, it is not boring. sure, an indie film is not a revelation but it can be sign of different perception of common things. and occasion for short moment of reflection about art as voice of street.
