Why no other comments. Understandable, intelligent poetry with beautiful imagery.  
Beautifully shot and written. Wonderful work. 
Nice videography and editing. Interesting use of jump cuts and back and forth color & /B&W. The music and narration, yes as well. Please watch my entry, 'Deadline'.  
Wow, breakup as murder. First film I've seen for this competition that completely flipped my expectations. A genuine, melancholy 'surprise' ending. It's a comment that we're so saturated with horror-porn films these days that I earnestly expected to see the inevitable slasher killing at the end. Thank you. By the way, your actress is hot:) 
Very effective mood you have created, and the narration is quite compelling. If interested, my film is called "The Course." 
Interesting and effective use of narration. Really enjoyed the somber mood that was created. -----Director of 'The Time Is Now'----- 
great use of colour and some really good composition shots...well done !!  
Great film and story telling!!! 
Excellent film! Very interesting actress with a cubic face. As they say, you created a mood, of course guitar and curator are your most valuable weapons for telling us this true story about murder. I hope it will stop here, your meditation about murder. I will give you my vote. Good luck! 
Nice editing Beautifully shot!!! 
Lovely short film. Really well shot. It's always tough to create a convincing/absorbing movie with only voice-over narration, but since the narrator put in a great performance too, I went along with it. Especially loved the mood the music created. 
Really good idea written nicely into a story and in turn 'executed' perfectly into pictures in motion........! 
Loved the atmosphere, the voice over, the lighting. Really well done.
