the atmosphere
28 February 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

...is the best part of this short film. Because you understand it , feel it. A bored middle age woman. The drops of adrenaline. The need of real sense of life. And the fall of each new try for a sort of happinnes. A nice film proposing a too familiar story working more like a too repeted lesson. The result is decent, the use of real story inpiring it - not bad but, after its end you feel something missing.
