dark and honest
The first thing that surprised me about the film was the number of awards received in the American but also European festivals for this independent movie.
The second thing is the story and the movie poster. drama thriller around a $ 1 bill that goes from hand to hand telling the stories of each owner of this ticket.
The film is dark and is not within the reach of all. you feel a certain dampness to the vision of this film. The characters are not there to be endearing, just bits of life that bring together deep America.
This independent movie has the merit to exist in the middle of the big machineries of the studios accustoming us to calibrated films. I was surprised by the esthetics and the technical mastery. Sometimes independent films are really hard to watch as it sounds amateur, but here it is absolutely not the case. We do not like the rhythm of this kind of film, we can only recognize the honesty of the people who worked on it.
I loved the music and the sound design. I noticed that there was no synthesized instrument but real voices and instruments. Which in the end did not surprise me. This film is honest from the beginning. A hard movie sometimes but in any case that has been noted in many festivals.
Apparently the first movie of a promising real. Curious to see the second film of this one anyway
