My take on this film...
6 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

I just caught this film at a film festival yesterday where it was nominated for "Best Feature Film," which it won, "Best Director," which it won, and "Best Actor," which it won. I don't know anything about the drama behind the scenes of this film, and all the dialogue that was cut from the script. All I can say is that I enjoyed it a great deal and it had very little to do with the dialogue. The Director, Ezequiel, is very strong in the style department. I understand that deciding to desaturate the film into a very stark black and white was a decision made late in the game, but it certainly worked for me. This is the kind of film that I hope to see when I attend film festivals. It was interesting, moody, and fiercely independent. I enjoyed the work of the entire cast, in particular the work of Juan Riedinger who played Gray in the film. If this guy keeps working at this level there is no reason why he can't become a very "in demand" actor. This film might not be for everyone, but nothing ever is. Kudos to the entire team.
