too cold
13 May 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

the subject is interesting but the manner to give it to the viewer seems be too cold. because you imagine the feelings more than you feel. the cancer and the friendship, the not comfortable confession and the pieces from past. and the honesty of few words changing all. result - a noble film for its purpose. and it could be enough for a short film who gives only a lesson/message for remind a delicate subject. the only bad thing is the presence of memories about better films about similar subject. and this does "Ballen" a decent try, more seductive for images and intentions , less for performances and script.
