      • I used to review short and long films for the Toronto International Film & Video Awards and rate them as well as provide a written critique. I would be pleased to take a look at yours before you enter it. I still review screenplays for them.

  2. I did not quiet get the last thing in your movie…about ‘what’ you mentioned about the man’s situation ? You mean man/women or just man ? Umm…

    • I just meant to reveal out the nakedness of a man’s mind under certain challenging circumstances. Didn’t ya understand anything happening by the climax part of the movie? 🙂


  3. I too couldn’t understand the end.
    The movie started well and held the attention till the last.
