Breathtaking
28 November 2010 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I caught this film at the zero fest a couple weeks ago and let me just say: it totally blew me away.

The first thing everyone first notices are the visuals, which are incredible. The sets especially were to die for (lol) and must have cost a small fortune. But what really impressed me was the writing of it, very clever and poignant. And the symbolic use of birds..... It was heavy but not enough to drag you down, or very long for that matter. Plus there were some points of relief I even laughed out loud a couple times at some of the interactions with the "kid", (I won't say more than that).

I'll be on the look out for features from this kid.
