fascinating
29 August 2014 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

an ordinary man. and its metamorphose. not very different by Kafka text but little more fascinating. not only for consequences or for make-up, for consequences and for social frame, but for precise portrait of many other lives. far to be a touching story, it could be a mirror. a film about shadows and about the relationships. about hate and about solution against it. few images, a splendid final scene. a movie with the role of cry. dark, cold, cruel, direct. almost too realistic because it remembers the existences of many from its viewers. one of beautiful short movies. for the stain who remains. for the traces after its final. maybe, for the invitation to discover in different manner the other, yourself and the elephants.
