A movie that makes you feel you are a direct witness
5 June 2020 | by neppop-57424See all my reviews

This movie is filmed in real time. I consists of just one take. The camera is switched on during a girls handball training and it is switched off one hour and thirty eight minutes later. This makes you a real time witness of what is happening.

The acting is convincing. The role of the mother is very demanding on the actress but the way she acts looks very natural. It is an emotionally very stressful story for all the participants and they all play their role very naturally. Remember, nobody can even goof once, since the whole movie is filmed in one take.

I admit that this story is not for everyone. The start is slow, girls training and then walking home, talking. The triviality intrigued me. Why am I witnessing this? But then, something shocking happens and you gradually find out what is really going on. I was so drawn into the action, I felt like wanting to ask the actors.

It is an extraordinary achievement if you can film such a documentary style movie with everybody acting so well in a stressful situation.
