You Should Not Miss This Film
20 December 2015 | by amysequenziaSee all my reviews

The story is seemingly simple but very well told. The camera moves smoothly through the set, and brings us inside, as if we are invisible characters, part of the story.

The acting is nothing less than superb. The subtleties already present in the script turn into mesmerizing lines in the voices of Hugh Dillon and Sergio Di Zio. It is hard to believe that it all happens in less than 10 minutes, that so much is told, even if not said, in such a short time.

I don't know if this was the idea but the film left me thinking about all that wasn't in the dialogues, but were nevertheless said in between the lines, in the eyes of the actors and in the way the camera moved from scene to scene. The music ties everything nicely.

Hugh Dillon and Sergio Di Zio are already well known and their work is fantastic. Very happy to see great work from Director Winnifred Jong and writer Daniel Godwin.

Excellent film!
