Filmed with steady control by using nothing but simple real-life conversations to move its story forward, making full use of its raw cinematography & clever editing, performed with remarkable naturalness from its entire cast & exploring the manipulative nature of people in an intimate manner to make its strong, universal statement about society. Death of the fish succeeds not only as an exquisite work of filmmaking but also as an honest portrayal of events that can happen to anyone in real life.
