Thrilling !
15 March 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

A short movie full of twists and turns, although the explanation in the end may seem less surprising than expected. But the story is thrilling indeed. The photography is neat and imaginative ; the camera really focuses on the main character, who is quite disturbed, and is often turning around him, floating like in a dream, which makes the audience feel ill-at-ease (and the music increase that feeling !). The camera is also close to the bodies of the characters (hands, mouths etc shot in close-up), which is uncommon and therefore intrigues. If you like the movies who deal with psychology, you will like this one ! It is the first movie of the director, and it's really a good first try !
