I think previous reviewer has watched the wrong film
22 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a short and is only 17 minutes long. The previous reviewer says that he walked out and says 'within 25 minutes'. I think this is a bit confusing since the short is, again, only 17 minutes. And just for clarification here, I do not know the filmmakers in any way, have never met them, and have only watched the film. I am not 'a friend'. This incredible film was made by a student. If you think you can do better cowboy (Zdislav_Dorklehoven from Oosterscheldekering), go ahead, post it online, and we can all review it and see how you do. Compared to the literally millions of short films out there, the directing, vision, and choice of shots in this film is second to none. Really incredible. This director has talent. End of story.
