touching, with believable characters
18 December 2009 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

Found this film through Youtube, it's featured on the videos of the day or something like that. It went unexpectedly good. There were tender moments when you can't help but feel for Dennis. The characters were believable, the main actor who played Dennis make Dennis a real character we can relate to.

The story... well, the story. Dennis is an introvert bodybuilder who still lives with her mother. He forms a somewhat unhealthy attachment with her mother (reminds me of Bate in Psycho, but well, it's not that creepy). So, when Dennis tells her mother he's going out with someone, her mother tries to prevent him from going. The movie is about what happens when he's going out and dis-attach from his mother for a night.

The film is very well done. The dialogue was great, the characters were believable, and I think there'll be psychological discussion after people watch this. I think this deserves much more viewings, and much more endorsements.

9/10
