about death
17 December 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Or about the clash between the fiction and reality in the eyes of a boy. Or about the propaganda tools. About a director, a film, a boy as actor and butcher. And about the end of scene. All presented in carrefull manner . A director, a boy the dinner a chocolate box , a short talk and kicks against the enemies. And the gun fire. For a Romanian viewer, reminding "Atunci i-am condamnat pe toti la moarte" by Sergiu Nicolaescu. Different context, off course but not real different result or impression. Short, a film about death. Viewed by a child actor. The last scene is remarkable in the all senses.
