Meh.
5 December 2015 | by (Ancona, Italy) – See all my reviews

I don't understand why suddenly everyone talks about this as a masterpiece, or says it's "wonderfully moving" or "thought provoking". My dear God. It's a short movie from a film school student who happened to become a successful Hollywood director. But that's not a valid reason to overrate this, that remains a mediocre work without any particular deep meaning or artistic value. The story is nice but very far from original. The cinematography is amateurish. I don't want to be that guy, I just hate when people ride the wave and overrate the s**t out of stuff. With 10 minutes on Google you can find shorts hundreds of times better than this one in every single aspect, but they're mostly unknown because the guys who made them didn't become famous. Period.
