A Good Weekend Film!
27 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

In this movie, which despite being a bit slow and nostalgic, set in the early 90's, a lot things happens! It's one of those movies, that makes you think and interact, your head is wondering and trying to know what will happen in the next few minutes.

The teen cast is not to be missed. Failure in some takes but is to be dropped in the taste of the director, in setting a very quiet place, with colors close to sunset at all times and a big air that the place of the film is always cloudy and cold.

The story of the film really happens from the 20 minutes, an introduction of recognition a little too much, but sensible and cohesive!

It really is necessary to pass the "feeling" of the characters for a better understanding of what will happen during the movie! When the film engages and really begins the suspense and tension, the scenes with dozens of dry cuts, make everything more bizarre, and more complicated. At times it reminds me very well of the plot and tension of "Donnie Darko" which makes us think that the director should or may have had some reference in this suspense icon film.

As I mentioned above, the picture of the film is something really impressive, the film has a very interesting environment, as well as the soundtrack that mixes instrumental and backgrounds of the 90's and 80's.

Anyway, it's a good movie, for those who have good patience and enjoy puzzles. The ending is quite "predictable", but it's worth it!
