Didn’t want to say too much on this. It’s a good story and a really original way of presenting it. Really enjoyable.

It was atmospheric and easy to picture the movie this could spawn. It was mysterious and gripping throughout.

There are a lot of positives, so I’ll just mention a couple of very minor negatives:

The music usually matched the mood of the script, but often felt a little over-dramatic (such as when they returned from their date montage in the cab), but overall it worked.

Some pronunciations were a little out: “Salut” is pronounced “Sa-loo” and “Grazzi” is pronounced “Grat-see”.

In script terms, I only had one niggle and that was the use of “to be” in most descriptions. “He IS sitting” instead of “He sits” etc. It’s only a small thing, but according to many industry insiders that have offered me advice in the past, it’s often a sticking point when reading scripts. It’s become a little bug-bear of mine that using “he is”, “They are” and “There is” instead of a more active phrasing.

Sorry, I’m really nit-picking about a script that was really well written and a test-film that was really well presented. Well done to all involved.
