No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
So tautly, engrossingly and convincingly told that it doesn't need much dialogue.
An effective, but self-conscious, exercise in contemporary neo-realism.
Screenplay also telegraphs the fates of both characters from very early on, a decision that sucks out a great deal of potential suspense and drama.
This flick has all the trimmings of a fourth-year film school final project and just isn't ready for the big screen.
One has some interesting scenes, but not enough to recommend it to most audiences.
Goes too far in the direction of reticence, deliberately dampening the emotional resonance of the story so persistently that the characters become opaque and the narrative overly flat and matter-of-fact, even at the most wrenching moments.
