Great narrative and script
6 March 2019 | by mariaque_santanSee all my reviews

"Sacrilège" tells the story of the well-known young man of the neighborhood that sees his own reputation fall apart when some money disappears from the mosque. With a great script, a dynamic rhythm and a mise en scène that takes dramatic profit of the city stairs, the short is a reflection on honor, ethics, and power. Plus, the performances of the main actors manage to involve the audience and get close to the main character in just some few shots. Definitely worth seeing.
