you feel it
4 September 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

A story who can not be spoken. So, you only feel it. An embroidery of dance and hurt, ,duty, masculinity, emotions, fear, love.All in the skin of a profound secret. A brutal choregraphy. And crumbs of "The Blake Swane" and "Othello".The story of a teenager and his inner storms... Beautiful performances and powerful message. And cold photography. A film who you feel it. That is all. At the first sigh, because "The Choke" has the precious virtue to be more than a dark drama.
