José Luis Ferrer,
I was taken into this film by its breathtaking cinematography, haunting music and genuine performances. Every scene carries you with slow-burn intensity, as you wait for the inevitable climax. When I Heard this was a film by a firs time director, with first time actors and first time DOP I was amazed at how this came together in such a mature, clever and concise film. I would recommend this movie for anyone wanting a night out, who believes inherently in the hope of humanity and that live can imitate art and have good outcomes. Well done to the team and I look forward to the next one!
