1 May 2013 | by mrj726See all my reviews

This film is a short. After you see it, you will feel that you saw a feature film. The script is filled with excellent and well delivered dialog. The direction could not have been more perfect. The actors were impeccable. The film takes you through a gamut of emotions. You leave wanting nothing more. How the director achieved this in a short film is amazing to this viewer. I was wowed. Saw it at the Newport Beach Film Festival. I have tried to check on DVD for the film but supposedly it is currently only being distributed in Italy. I also saw that won the Tribeca award for best Narrative Short and I can see why. The last thing I guess I can say is that in a film that has so much emotion and humanity sometimes it can get bogged down in it. This film does not do that. It is entertaining and enjoyable.
