Three friends about to turn 30 call themselves animal names: Badger, Hyena and Pigeon.

Great camera work.
28 May 2013 | by michaldarilaSee all my reviews

Easy movie, tho the aesthetics are great. The plot is interesting, and in one point you really get into it, however I missed further evolution of characters regarding their motivation. The first discomfort comes from the fact that the girls is actually boy, but no biggie, you get used to it easily. I did not care about the constant changing of style (relational comedy, crime, social drama) but I found myself quite lost in moving the focus between characters, so none of them is really the main one. Also the violation of all rules should be controlled at least by some rules. I give my thumbs up for the light sense of humor, yet very compelling. Maybe there could be more of it. Looking forward for more work.
