Hi Gareth,

I too enjoyed it very much. I particularly like the use of camera movement and zooms (just enough). Interesting all the way through.

Tom

I liked it a lot. Whether the mental illness caused his hand problem or the hand problem created his downfall, I don't know, but the story was very compelling to watch. I loved that the director gave us some great visual cues. The shots of the chimps, the baby, the toy, the picture in the restaurant, and the actor wipe onto the piano. The sound was great. I hope it does well. It shows you can tell a story with pictures. I absolutely hated the shot of the beer being wasted. Especially if it was cold and frosty. :P Other than that minor detail it was very, very good.

Hey Gareth,

I really enjoyed the film. I thought your camera work was very good and completely in step with the storyline.

Good luck in Cannes!
