A perfect short film
13 October 2020 | by chrishastings1066See all my reviews

I saw this as part of the Satisfied Eye International Film Festival and from first minute to last was absolutely blown away. It's such a perfect film in every way, from the directing, the writing, the cinematography, the acting. It's very rare that you get a short film that nails every single element and this is a wonderful example of what can be achieved in short form. The central performance by Rainer Woss is incredible and so agonisingly truthful and he is supported by an incredibly strong cast. It's a multi-layered and intelligent film that lingers in the mind long after it's finished and director Albin Wildner is clearly One to Watch!
