A quality movie experience, but...
27 January 2016 | by KevinDrechsler1997See all my reviews

I really liked this short, also because I was thrilled for this for over 7 months. Today I finally saw it, and to be honest, I was surprised in many ways. The acting, the atmosphere, the music, the special-effects and the make-up where almost complain-less. The only thing that really bothered me, were the audio-levels. Sometimes you can barely hear the context of the conversations, and yeah, you can turn the audio more loud, but the thing is, some dialogue, and mainly sound-effects (like gun-shots) are then on the point of peaking. It would be better to bring the barrier between the softest spoken dialogue and the sound-effects a bit closer together, and as a citizen from the Netherlands it really could help to add some subtitles, at least English, so we still can understand what they are whispering to each other(mainly the ending dialogue). But the visual part of it was almost top-notch, some minor complaints, but it is a short with potential for sure. It surely ranks in my top 10 shorts! Great work, I'm looking forward to the feature length flick.
