nice. and little more
29 October 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Two friends. Very different. And a truth changing, at the first sigh, everything. A lovely short film for the inspired construction of characters. And for great atmosphere. A simple, not so easy comedy about friendship, secrets, temptations and the complementarity between two real different guys in a summer day.
