Beautiful film!
5 May 2019 | by films-134-720366See all my reviews

Hold Back is a tragic and poetic ballad about a love triangle between three skater friends looking for love but discovering life. It is a beautiful film that uses a clever and disturbing directorial gimmick to show us the lack of communication and the void before the final transition to adulthood. Geypens mixes talented professional actors with non-professionals showing great maturity as a director and a morbidly poetic style, agitated and alienating with references to the best films by Gus Van Sant, Larry Clark and Harmony Korine.

(Antonello Faretta, President of the Jury at the Magma Short Film Festival, Sicily)
