Seven Years in May
7 October 2020 | by dansolo-20563See all my reviews

I liked it. The monologue that must've gone on for about 15 minutes was excellently done. A really harrowing speech that spoke without restraint on the terrifying police state that seems to be Brazil. That monologue, and then conversation with the stranger, really was the substance of this film. The opening was quite forgettable, and the ending, though quite captivating, was fairly on the nose. In my opinion, a good short employs the camera to do one job and makes sure it does it to the best of its ability. For this film, excluding the crusts, the camera became a microscope, fixated on Rafael for practically every word he spoke, and even when he didn't speak. A good and important watch
