I sometimes stumble across a film that takes me by complete surprise. How You Look At Me popped up on my Amazon and it was raining so there you go. Why not! It is only 80 Minutes.

I was unsure at the beginning, but by the end I was pulled through so many emotions I don't even know where to begin.

Mia, beautifully played by Anna Astrom (who I haven't seen in films before, but she was captivating) crashes into the lives of a couple that is emotionally and physically distant. Her intentions aren't clear and the film skilfully treads between a romance and a thriller. Once you piece the chronology together, the relationships start to fold in on themselves.

A big nod here also to the music! Moody and brooding it sets the tone of the film, only to build into a fast paced melody by the end of the film.

When I checked on IMDB I saw that it had all these 1 star reviews and it really surprised me. The film is not without its flaws, but it kept me surprised and emotionally invested in all of the characters in ways no Hollywood film is able to. More of this please!
