Not bad for a low budget
9 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's definitely not the best movie out there, but when you take in consideration the ultra low budget behind its creation, which according to IMDb was at only 100k, it's actually not bad at all. According to the cinematographic quality, from the very beginning, it is obvious that it is a low budget art/indi film, however once you accept it for what it is, it is actually rather interesting, and seems to suck you in about half way in to the movie. For instance, the first 10 minutes, there is not a single word spoken, in fact it feels overly artsy and slow, and even comic in a way, however, it is very rich in imagery, which makes up for it's slow paste, and gradual rise. Sort of like the ambiance music you might listen to in an airplane, to calm you down, if you don't like flying.

The film sort of reminds me of the experimental 1960's Prague film school films, with a bunch of picturesque images intermingling with each other, while the richness in colors ads to its value. Another element that comfortably surprised me, was the fact that at every moment, there is some kind of a soundtrack playing, is it just some barely heard ambient sound, or a classical symphony, there is hardly a second in the movie without music. From the beginning until the end, the film never leaves its tempo, which it manages to hold until the very end.

The film doesn't really start to pick up in its story until about half way in, which I felt was cleverly done, as majority of the new high budget blockbusters reach their peaks at the beginning, and then just ride that left over echo throughout the entire movie. This, I find to be a grossly cheap solution for a quick money making gimmick with today's high budget blockbusters. However, here, it seems that the filmmakers didn't have another choice, but to be more clever and creative in using the less available funds at their disposal, which it seems, that they did just that. Here the slow gradual rise to its peak was rather interestingly done, where I felt the gradual transition in its tempo and dynamic of the story was original, in the way that it didn't use the usual formula that many others do. While at the same time, never loosing its art experimental feel and style of the film. This is something that I found very interesting in a low budget film, because very little filmmakers still manage to do this in a transition of the story, yet stay consistent to it's style and genre.

Overall, despite the lower budget lack of quality in its cinematography, compared to many today's blockbusters, this movie somehow never lost me, and managed to keep my attention until the end. Which for a low budget film like this, is very impressive in my opinion.
