This is how you make a good short film with little money
Whatched it couple of days ago at the Pula film festival with my girlfriend. We were both astonished, mesmerized and thrilled with what we saw.
Apart from good acting, what caught our attention was the way the author built cinematic tension and how he managed to grow it and guide it till the last scene. Good tension building is what is lacking in recent Croatian cinematography and I am sooo delighted that at least someone is doing something about it.
We saw it among other 3 or 4 Croatian short films, which were mostly also good, but this one stands above all of them. Someone once said that audiences go to cinema to worry, not to enjoy themselves. I am definitely one of those people, cos' by the end of this short and small masterpiece I was biting my nails so hard that one my fingers was bleeding. This is how good I think this movie is!
