Totally did not see that coming. Great twist. Also the awkardness of the living room scene was quite tangible. 
Bueno final! No lo esperaba para nada.  
I like your theme. I believe there are many people out there who have to go through similar problems. Please check out my film "together again" and let me know what you think. 
I was expecting that the twist at the end would be that they WERE living together until the other guy walked into the bedroom, lol. Good ending! Good, realistic acting... totally believable! lee~ 'Backwards In Time'...  
Looks like you might have had a little trouble uploading it to Filmaka in high quality, but in spite of that, it's still obviously shot very well. Great story. I feel like the actual visit could have been trimmed slightly, but I do appreciate the fact that you showed the atmosphere without dialogue and only through images. Best part is the ending, which carries quite an impact. 
Oh, I really enjoyed that, the ending was unexpected and I think the atmosphere of the meeting came across really well. Shortlisted! 
Nicely done on all fronts. Too bad about the upload quality. Next time be sure to ask them to re-compress it and you won't necessarily need to re-upload. I had trouble in the past, as long as you're not uploading at the last minute they should be able to help. Good job otherwise.  
nice! i didn't expect the ending. 
Carlos, I really liked the montage in the middle. This is where the film took off for me personally. I also liked the camera movement towards the end of the piece. I can't put my finger on it but I reacted better to the montage than the rest of the piece. Maybe it was the music, Maybe it was the camera work and performance. Not sure. I also liked how you set up the Dad quickly and effectively. That's smart writing.  
awesome film!!!!!!!!please check out "BEE IN THE WEB" and let me know ur reviews!!!!!!! 
Excellent work! I loved the way you interpreted the theme and your casting was really great. Loved the mom especially. I enjoyed the smoke slo-mo sequence the best - nice use of tension!  
Good job with the story. I loved the camera shot at about 2:22, very cool stuff. Great use of characters and tension as well...  
Felicidades Carlos. Me gustó tu trabajo. La historia es pequeña y sencilla pero te mantiene interesado. Creo que esos son elementos de una buena historia. Good luck!! 
Wow, very mean parents - lol. Well shot, I like it. Great acting too!  
Nicely shot, good work! I agree with the others, the mother character is great. 
Surprising indeed, nice turn at the end.
