Hi Benigno great short. The lighting in the last few scenes were brilliant, great cinematography. Narrative was interesting...thumbs up. 
Very well done! How did you post this? The last scenes really doesn't look mini-DVish at all. Keep it up! 
what i liked are the images and the way uve edited them. its like a painting on mixed media. but i got a little lost as i watched ur film. this is just a thought... if we do not know what we've lost, we will never be able to find it. urs is a very deep film. cheers and good luck.

great work guys. I'm inspired by how great you made miniDV look, what equipment did you use? short-listed 
thanks a lot for your comment!! we used final cut pro and after effects for the color correction, very effective tools 
i've watched this film five times. it's just incredible. the first time i wasn't even paying attention to the story i was just looking at the shots and editing.. the second time i was reading the text.. the third time i managed to put it all together.. fourth and fifth time just for revision.. what the heck i'll watch it one more time.. brilliant.. :) 
man we apreciate a lot this comment! 
I've had this huge debate with myself on whether feature films should be shot on film or digital, but I'm glad to say your short seals the deal for me. I know I'll start paying more attention to what after effects can do for me from now on 
Me gustaron las tomas de Japon, y el final. Buena Suerte 
I've been to japan 3 times, so I can appreciate your feelings.The way you've shot and edited the film is great. I have one suggestion. Say less with words and more with images. During the middle part you can loose the majority of the audience. Do not expect people watching it twice. You have one chance to grab the attention and use it with full impact at the end.
