Buried Alive


After a miner enters a mine for work, there is a cave-in, trapping him deep underground.

Our Review

If you think your job is difficult, be my guest and watch Buried alive. Even a single day's pay matters and risks are taken in spite if intuitions showing you signs of risk ahead. Cinematography is mesmerizing the way its captured is astonishing.

The terrible sorrowful events that befall the miner has rattled every single emotion left within me. How fateful to die without being noticed. The script leads to a kind of emotional state, contemplative, meditating on uncertainty of life. And being reminded of a simple fact that everyone we love will eventually die and all we can do is make the most of the time we have with them, avoiding unnecessary arguments and expressing the unsaid love. A minimalistic movie yet a powerful delivery.
