Director - Irma Čakarić
We really enjoyed the film! It transported me back to a time when photos were taken with negative rolls in old click cameras. The cinematography is simply mesmerizing, and every scene is like a precious gem that stays with you long after the film ends. Calvin's subtle expressions convey so much without him having to say anything at all. The original score, editing, screenplay, cinematography, direction, production design, and Ben Hilzer's outstanding performance all contribute to making this film a grand success.
