Message of hope…
27 February 2012 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

HOPE is a short little film by the young but promising director Pedro Pires.

(I suppose he must have some Portuguese ascendance because of his surname).

I really appreciated this short movie because it has a strong message and a very good photography.

At parts it seems quite surreal but watching it until the end we see it all makes sense.

It's about war, death and suffering but it's mostly a message of hope…

I score it 7/10.
