Academy Award nominated short is a quite novel calling card from director Tom Van Avermaet which will hopefully lead to further shorts or a feature. Matthias Schoenaerts captures lovelorn and sacrificing quite succinctly but its the scripts mix of science fiction and lost love that gives this top marks.
It creates a great atmosphere and some scenes are very inspiring and thought-provoking. I love the universe that the plot is put in, every single detail about the world in there fits in so well! The production design is superb! Interior, machines, everything is in its right place. The whole concept of a place where a high authority is commanding photographs to capture the beauty of the "art of dying" blew my mind!
