    The killing at the end is not convincing at all, and dialogs are bad, bat in some moments the camera work I like, and there is the story. Your next film is much better.

    oh, vents, suicide is just not an option for short film: here a rather convincing statement was made like a meta-text, kind of commentary, a morale added at the end of fable. logical outcome, wasn’t it?
