a metaphor
17 July 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A short film about darkness. Disturbing, using well the ambiguity of scenes, proposing subjective clues, giving a portrait of deep sadness, fake refuges, booze and tattoos , like a demonic embroidery. Not exactly a story but wise suggestions. A new tattoo , a bathtub and a sort of invoked child. And,the death . The first temptation - to see a sense. But the challenge is to give to it one. Short, great craft.
