Now Thats What I Call Cinema at it Finest
10 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fedric Dumonts debut feature that was a well deserved winner at the 2009 Karlovy Vary International Film Fest Crystal Globe for best film and actor. A Psychological look at a father and son relationship. A manic depressive and suicidal man confides the trust of his son to keep a dark secret with devastating consequences takes a toll on the whole family. Beautifully shot flawlessly written and directed this gem of a film deserved more exposure than what it got internationally. Olivier Gouurmet and Martin Nissen give outstanding performances. I cant wait to see what else Fredric Dumont will create with his gifted talent. Take not American film makers this is great film making.
