Intriguing - grabs and keeps the attention. Perfectly choreographed and timed. Suits its length. Good to see such short film with much substance. - Little Dot Studios.

The Pace is perfectly realised where you have enough times of the concept to make it interesting but not too much to get bored of it. The last shot is stunning & ends beautifully the film. The cast and their subtle display of acting works perfectly. - Iconoclast.

Clever idea, hard to get a strong emotional engagement in such a short time but the overall concept was quickly established and perfectly executed. - Freefolk
