The Incredible Shrinking Wknd (El increíble finde menguante) Reviews

July 23, 2020
The Incredible Shrinking Wknd is the kind of film that you hope to find when you attend a festival. A small, under-the-radar gem that delivers an experience that far exceeds its budget and star power.

A gradual parabolic climb, a subtle escalation that builds and builds.

The Incredible Shrinking Wknd is a film that succeeds due to its capacity to connect with the viewer by making them feel with the characters and by creating a visual environment that pulls them in further and further as the film advances.

[A] micro level investigation of a love affair gone south that will find an empathetic audience absolutely riveted by its profound simplicity.
