Christina is a moving and powerful film. It is cleverly staged and lighted. The performances of the 3 main characters are all compelling. It is a dramatic, captivating story that is remarkable relevant to today's world of seemingly endless war. The effects of war, subtle and profound, are presented in a way that makes the living hell become real for those fortunate to have not experienced it first hand. The fact that the film was shot in a condensed time frame, sequentially and on a limited budget make it even more remarkable. The entire movie is shot on one set, yet the camera movements and angles amplify the dialog very effectively and focus the attention of the viewer.
