Raak
12 May 2007 | by rajdoctorSee all my reviews

This short movie was shown as a bonus – free viewing along with the screening of the movie "Interview". May be the distributor of the movie must be the same in Netherlands. The genre of short movie making is the most difficult medium. One has to be very creative as well as effective in engaging the audience and convey a catchy story-line. This is a ten minute short film.

The story is about relationships, between five characters – son, his father and mother, and mother's lover and his wife. I won't tell you the story over here – otherwise it would spoil your "just" 10 minutes of feeling the movie.

This movie has also won the Golden Berlin Bear award as the Best Short Film of 2007 at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Hanro Smitsman – the Dutch Director has done justice with the time and opens up the movie in the last scene. The last scene unwinds the audiences mind to think about all the first 9 minutes that passed by. Interesting - Worth seeing it one more time! Kudos! (Stars 7.5 out of 10)
