NO EXIT - RISE AGAINST

NO EXIT - RISE AGAINST

Directed by Jesper Isaksen ''No Exit 2'' is an action film with an intriguing premise, but with an unconvincing cinematic structure. The director is in need of a better correlation between means of expression in film, which should complement and not reiterate each other.

Somewhere, Tomorrow

Directed by André Siqueira The film reveals a well-crafted love story and a truly great piece of filmmaking. But, at the same time, it’s clearly that it’s not a film made for everyone and you may need some kind of experience or maturity in order to reach the whole meaning of this short story.
