admirable work
14 January 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

a doorman. and a costumer. a demand from the last. the struggle against his feelings of the first. the dialogue reduced at few words. and a fascinating exploration of the fantasies of a student, the duty of a simple doorman, wise manner to build the tension and the beautiful-dark end. it is more than a good story- it is the story of its characters. and the motif for this is real simple - the art of script to give more than one side of the personality of them. this is the detail who gives to this short film force, coherence and admirable credibility. and each of them does it more than illustration of a delicate theme but a form of poem about duty, feelings and right choice after the impact with the truth.off course, Jamil Mena is the master of his character grow up and the important explanation for define "Doorman" as a not ordinary short film.
