About the Film:
There are a very few movies which cannot find the spotlight, and are buried under the “Big Budget Monsters.“ This one is that kind of a movie, rather a conversation. The movie revolves around a central character, a professor, who is moving out and has thrown a get together party. What seems to be a story about him, rather turns too fascinating to withdraw. But is it just a story or the truth?
Why should you watch it:
Movies with constraints: a conversation in a closed room, relates to the director’s ability to bend the rules and create perfection. And when a pool of enigmatic characters converse, in which the central character spins a story about him, the plot becomes dense, yet breathable. When all the characters cannot decide about the credibility of the story, the real story starts. Puts the viewers to the edge of their seats.
