Near home made bording film
14 July 2018 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

...the idea is good but the realization is not. Normally you do not see too much contact between strangers in a big city; however the film relies on this to tell the story that by the way have very little cohesion between parts; yes parts or encounters. There are three encounters between the main character and the strangers and just only that. Some one appears out of blue and almost invade the proximity of these other persons. Not a total stranger because all are in the known that she is/was an actress. That can be act as an incentive to continue with the chat or to not feel reluctant about the situation. There is some kind of dualism in the characters. Might be that all what she does is a BIG life act? This is what could be good; the idea that a mere stranger can change the way you see your life from here on. Problem is that this do not work right in this movie. -The acting is just too stoic; nothing relevant in that area. Camera work trying to be indie finished too rookie. The colors are good and some photography are right.
