Ain interesting short that shows us the real consequences of something as meaningful as casual unprotected sex. Nice acting performance from Victoria I loved the way she portrayed the character the way she played her without any sort of emotion during the sex scenes, lifeless almost, mirroring the desolation that was in her heart after being diagnosed with this serious illness. The sound editing was well achieved, something that is often neglected in these types of short’s but this is not the case, at all, there is a delicious piece of piano during the movie composed by Marcos Badalo that stands out from the rest of the music played back during the movie. In therms of photography it’s average, but it has some interesting details starting with the overexposure of the cameras in some scenes which was something I hadn’t seen in a while.
