the guilt
12 May 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A dark , poetic short Sci. Fi. A Peacemaker. A ship. A mission refused for humanitarian motives. And a fake solar storm. The sacrifice. A new beginning. Fascinating close ups, good performances, eerie atmosphere, inspired storytelling and a smart game of states. Nothing significant, at the first sigh but a beautiful work.
