Great Movie, I was gripped from the beginning to end!
I had the pleasure of getting to see this movie at its world premiere in Whistler and found it to be a great movie to represent Canadian films. While being an Independent Canadian Feature,it has a much larger feel and look. Raphael was more than successful in getting great performances out of his actors and crew. The actors were fantastic, and so well suited to their roles. The movie itself was realistic and emotional with believable twists and turns. I think that this movie is a sign of things to come for Canadian film as more film makers see that just because you're not making a movie with a lot of money, doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice quality. I don't know the budget of this movie, but as Canadian films go they usually don't have a lot and the result is just. This movie shows that passion and determination make good films, not money. I wish only good things for "The Zero Sum" and the director Raphael Assaf as I believe that everyone should have a chance to see this film and more from him.
