Extremely refined quality short film
25 January 2012 | by Henrik Norby ThuesenSee all my reviews

This film is overlayed with a deep and gloomy atmosphere.

From the beginning to the end, one gets the feeling of watching a good feature film, and both the image and sound quality surprises in a matter of professionalism.

The camera action and movements are really refined, and the story likewise.

I really enjoyed this film, and when it finished I was stunned for a moment or two, reflecting about its plot. It's deep, sad and at the same time filled with a discrete happiness.

But it doesn't end here, I recently read that it has been nominated for an Oscar. This is what drew my attention to the film. The crew has done a magnificent job, and I would recommend it to everyone that enjoys a film with an euphoric underlying meaning.
