a meeting
20 December 2012 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

seductive, touching, fresh. real impressive. few images and words and a large circle of emotions. one of that short films who precise rules. and lives as skin of atmosphere. like in many other short movies, important is silence. in this case, it is result of clash between different cultures, image of sin and desire, fear and lust. extraordinary - the end. essential - science to be more than a gay film, its universal message. and, the inspired option for two good actors who does convincing roles as fruits of nuances. it is difficult comment it. because, as each short movie, it is a kind of haiku. the flavor is powerful or fiction for every viewer. but the scent remains. tender, fresh, special.
