"An auspicious and remarkably assured debut..." - Jason Wood, LondonNet

It is an interesting approach, telling a cinematic story entirely through photographic stills. This provides pauses so that the accompanying dialogue and thoughts of the characters have some singularity. The enigmatic preface to the film (I won't disclose it) lends other dimensions, almost like make-your-own-adventure, at least speculatively. I was, at least, intrigued. A good story, well told.

The film has an alluring quality. At first it takes time to adjust to stills, but the story line is very good and you soon appreciate its concept.

No pos wow! I really enjoyed this film. It was so good, I totally forgot that this film was assembled with still shots.

good movie
