makes my name proud
28 February 2011 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

The Confession is only 26 minute long. It's really thrilling. I imagine that the script is so good that you can triple that time and make a full- length movie. I still liked the short film though.

Tanel Toom is unknown in film industry. Until now. Nominated for Oscar in short film category. This is a massive achievement for a young guy like Tanel. I assume this gives him a gigantic boost for the future. Well, he didn't win, but actually it doesn't matter that much. The best thing about this nomination is that his name is much better known now. And it can open many doors to him which were closed prior to nomination. He seems a bright fella. Maybe a future face of Estonian film business, who knows. Anyway, I'm glad for him.
