Comforting Reflections
A thought-provoking little piece that conveys a message from the writer-director. Not much goes on in the film but we have a funny opening of an old guy warning the camera crew following him that not much is going to happen and they'll be wasting their film.

By page 30 the writing became more flabby and the storyline more unbelievable... read
