Amazing thriller short-film
12 December 2009 | by juanlord7See all my reviews

I have been overwhelmed, is very well done and interpreted. I have had strained all the time, my eyes (pun intended) riveted to the end, and I think it is well settled. The truth is that they take away the desire to go to the optometrist as I do. There are moments of real fear when it looks like they are watching the protagonist. It's great, but it happens that I always want more and when finished I felt like, especially if I get into the thread of the story. And leave something to the imagination of everyone, it seems a good option. "Curiosity killed the cat" is just what I thought before I told the doctor. Why are we so curious? What is forbidden is tempting, at times, especially when they know the consequences and, painfully plays a trick on us. I have been amazed by this work, a great short-film, the nightmare you might say. I enjoyed this minimalist short-film, I think it is a great job and I hope it gets the recognition it deserves. Congratulations to Pedro Jaen and for all who have worked in this film, I declare from now admirer of your work for that dream that we've allowed to see. Good luck with your work, I'm sure you'll keep giving you great moments to the screen.
