The Air I Breathe is not available at this time. Instead, check out Géla Babluani's 13 Tzameti, which is currently showing on MUBI.
One star is a prize for this I thought you could give none. Hei...How many clichés can you fit into a film and conceal it with known actors. Not all the clichés in the world would remotely relate to you, as did this film, by the way.
A quite pretentious movie with a poor orchestration: script surely has its interesting moments, but all is overwhelmed by that amateur approach that sadly makes the final result a bit pathetic. Anyway thinking on the fact it's a debut, Lee has got surely something to say. See him next time [?].
Winner of the World Cinema grand prize at Sundance 2006, this atmospheric nail-biter, etched in stark, grisly black & white, is a triumph of diabolical filmmaking imagination, using the most minimal of tools to tighten the screws on the audience.
