Writer and director Roberto Vivancos’ zero-budget vision delivers on all fronts – it is technically accomplished, flawlessly acted, and even manages to place its narrative within a broader social discourse – all in under two minutes. Vivancos should take great pride in what he has accomplished here, because it takes stringent planning and a tireless attention to detail to pull something like this off.
