I really like your film - the mood, acting and choice of music play very well. Nicely shot and edited. Well done. Please check my film "together again" and let me know what you think. 
Good movie Sara... must have been a lot of work... 
Wow... nice short. I liked the photography, the acting... really liked the music. Strong ending, great piece. Congrats. Check out my short "Dusk in Limbo" afterwards and please tell me what you think!  
Great shot flow. I liked where it went. Addiction can drive us to some absurd lengths. 
You use the camera to weave out a beautifully poetic language. Bravo!  
Awesome for having shot as well as edited in 4 hours! Shorts are extremely hard to edit! Good writing, acting, production design, wardrobe, cinematography and especially good editing! Totally unexpected ending. It's short-listed. lee~ 'Backwards In Time'...  
WoooW!! It's an amazing film. Sure you get my vote! It's poetic and it has an amazing and hard back to reality ending. Human and absolutely real. Congratulations! Could you check my own film "The Visit"? Best,  
Wow, a really good film. It's a really powerful ending, just great! 
One of the best movies for this month's theme. Both halves were excellent. The first part was extremely stylized and featured some incredible cinematography / camera movements. Writing was top notch as was the performance of the daughter through her voice-over. Great work, you get my vote. 
Nice film. Good camera work. Since the beginning I kind of got the idea where it was going, but it was still effective. It tells the point.  
awesome film!!!!!!!!please check out "BEE IN THE WEB" and let me know ur reviews!!!!!!!loved the costumes!!!!!!!! 
Fantastic! I loved the style and the cinematoraphy. Good luck. 
Impressive and powerful - really great use of the theme. Shortlisted for sure. 
This was really well done. I loved the contrasting styles, especially at the end when the visuals looked clear and real. This is one of my favorites... excellent work.  
I liked the Ziegfield follies look of the beginning. And there was just one prop at the end on the table that got me asking the right questions. Basically, 'What the hell is that doing on the table?" 
Nice turn. 
Great twist! Got me going!! 
You got my vote. Great work!
