This is an outstanding short film that features a strong story, excellent acting by all parties, and wonderful cinematography. The palpable tension throughout builds to a surprising, but satisfying conclusion, while sending an unspoken message on the themes of war, xenophobia, patriotism, and a warped sense of duty. The run time is around 17 minutes, but it’s worth it. For those who are commitment phobic, you can check out the film’s trailer at the link above before making up your mind.
Then click on the bloody film. Like I said, It’s worth it.
