Visually beautiful, perfectly directed, but the message could have been clearer
13 November 2017 | by Harrison Tweed (Top Dawg)See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of short films and this one was a sweet little gem. The visuals are remarkable for a short as was the directing and score.

The writing/plot could have been better to get the message across that this in fact wasn't a sci-fi, but instead an intimate character study.

The sci-fi narrative unfolds in a pseudo-documentary style that radiates with authenticity while balancing the film's stark human drama.

I don't want to give anything away, but this film is one of those that certainly needs a second viewing, as you will pick out things you missed the first time, and at only 15 mins long, it's very easy to do.

Very enjoyable and a 8/10 from me.
