Nice work on this. I thought the mood and tone was very appropriate, and suitably dreary.
I wish more of the story could've been shown instead of told - especially since the "flashback" shots were really beautiful. As the conversation kept going, I kept wishing I could see what he was talking about. Still, it was very evocative and engaging. Anything shot in the rain automatically makes me a happy guy.

My favorite thing about this entry was the sound design on the flashbacks. Actually, the shots for the flashbacks were very nice as well.
The horse intro was nice as well, but I don't really know what it had to do with the story.
The main part of the film was solid, and had nice cinematography, but I think you could have made it more visually interesting by having more blocking for the actors.

I just need to point out that the composer did the flashback sound. ;) Thanks, Jason. It's all the same instruments as in the music, mostly backwards or pitch-shifted out of their normal ranges.

Really enjoyed this one. Lots of good films this fest. I would also have to agree that I would have liked to have seen more of what he had done since what we did see of it looked so damn good. Well acted and definitely well put together. Nice score as well.
The rain also added a nice feel to it.

Good work here, very mature, slow paced, good acting and dialogue. I like both the leads, the costumes and the location. The rain is a nice touch, well i guess i like everything because the score is good too. the ending caught me by surprise and it's cool, but the kid sure doesn't seem phased by it. I would have liked a better emotional response from him. But I may be wrong, if he was intended to not care then so be it.Matt Harris
