Pessimistic view on the parallel lives of an ex-convict versus an upcoming criminal. Very good drama with believable protagonists
20 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Film Fest Ghent 2014, where it was programmed as part of the Global Cinema section. We follow two people involved in criminal activities (one ex-con, one upcoming), and see from very nearby how difficult it can be to sever yourself from non-honest ways of earning money. The ex-con makes every attempt to stay clean. The upcoming criminal, on the other hand, gets deeper and deeper in trouble with towering debts while he invests all his money in making a demo tape, eventually seeing no way out other than a criminal path forward. Believable protagonists all around. Also believable side roles that add enough color to the proceedings to keep our interest.
