16 May 2011 | by (Italia) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on a festival in Italy, where it won the 1st prize.

It's like a small explosive. Starts slowly and carefully, but ends with a big awesome bang. It's always difficult to make a good short film, as the time is compressed. This one used the time and space exactly how short films should. Actors are good enough and carry out well their characters and the character of the film, which is unique in a way and very amusing.

Many times I didn't know if it is all supposed to be serious or funny. It was all on the edge of both. Very sarcastic. The short film is visually great, amazing location, and costumes, and some unexpectedly beautiful shots, among which ones is surely the best reloading shot in cinema history, in my very humble opinion.

Watch it if you have a chance, you won't regret, I promise.
