My review

Wonderfully written and directed by Rose, this short film shows us two cousins ​​who plan their futures, their desires and are confronted with the fact that life does not always unfold as we imagined. The actresses, both adolescent and adult, brilliantly managed to make us feel their emotions.

I also very appreciated the choice of music at the end, which lent itself beautifully to the atmosphere and the feelings of the film.

Also, seeing Rose‘s name as director at the end had a special emotion for me. It’s a new step in her career and I’m so proud! I can’t wait to see what’s next for her. In the very end of the credits, special thanks were made for her family and her role model, Miranda Harcourt. That was a super cute note.

Cast and crew of this short film have made a fantastic job. Huge congratulations to everyone involved!
