This foreign student film is very unique. It deals with depression and suicide The entire film is shot in black and white, with no dialogue, only music. Because of this, it relies solely on the music and the cinematography and both really work. I love the music. It replaces the dialogue perfectly. The cinematography is really good. The camera angles are very engaging and add to the mystery of the story. The music is hauntingly beautiful. The story left me wanting more. This could easily be turned into a full length feature film. The ending left me curious and wanting to know more. I feel like this is a film that a group of friends would each see differently. You could spend hours theorizing about the ending. It is not for young children because of the subject and it is slightly gory. I recommend it for ages 11 to 18 and give it 4 out of 5 stars. It would be especially good to watch in groups such as at a film festival. Reviewed by Calista B., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic and Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Juror.
