Gorgeous and heartbreaking piece of work. Superb!
19 October 2016 | by LopousIMDbSee all my reviews

I just saw this around the internet and was like "It's worth a try" and oh god... it is! This might the most majestic short movie I've seen so far. It went to questions to answers, to even more answers. It's also a bit heartbreaking, but in a good way. This movie is so good that it actually felt like a long decent movie.

I was really impressed they chose Gustavo Santaolalla's soundtracks in this because his soundtracks is pretty good and fitting for this.

If I had to describe this movie in few words then it would be "Shot through the heart", if you don't know what I mean by that, so do I mean it as This gave feels, so hardcore that my heart was hurting.
