This project movie (50 min) suffers from some shortcomings:
1. An interesting plot, not only a single idea, is essential if you want the audience to go with the story.
2. The narrative is, to say the least, bumpy. More work on the connection from one scene to the next is needed.
3. Take actresses who can act. The leads were unsatisfactory.
One aspect, though, was quite nicely done: the photography. The director and/or the director of photography manage to create a mosaic of black-and-white and sepia takes, intermingled with other sequences with saturated colors, that made the movie quite enjoyable to watch.
