Beautiful film!
3 January 2018 | by Top-FilmsSee all my reviews

The Song of Sway Lake directed by Ari Gold is a « don't miss » film. First, the scenery and the lake are stunning. The colors can be warm and bright. The lake is also wonderful because there is a lot of history going through the past and it looks like it's alive! If you turn the lights off you feel like being part of the movie and you totally forget where you really are. Good feeling!

The actors, mainly Mary Peth Peil, Rory Culkin and Robert Sheehan are very talented. They are all different but also connected by a common point: a great nostalgia they all have but with different points of view. They are very interesting. The talent of these actors is great and allows us to love each character with his or her own personality.

And then there's the music. It was written by Ethan Gold. It cradles you and goes perfectly with the film.

I'd like to add that the film has already won an award at the Laughlin International Film Festival, another one for the Best Picture at Vancouver Golden Panda International Film Festival and a third one for winning the « Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature » at the Seneca Film Festival. Robert Sheehan has also won an award for the Best actor at Laughlin International Film Festival and Mary Beth Peil for the Best actress at Vancouver Golden Panda International Film Festival. It's well deserved because The Song of Sway Lake is superb! Congratulations to Ari Gold and to everybody who worked for the film!
