    Hi Jorge,

    Please remove one of the films and put it into a new thread of its own ("One film per thread" - see the sticky at the top of the forum.). Otherwise feedback can become confusing. Thanks.

    (BTW I thought both were great, but that's not all you want to hear)

    I've watched this several times. I also don't understand it, but I really think I must be missing something obvious.

    Plot wise, she's seducing him. He sees something which scares him off. He tries to escape. He breaks out and runs off. She (supernaturally?) manages to get ahead of him and he cannot help but being seduced. Then we cut to ... what? He's (I assume it's him) happy with the whole situation. Why? What's happened? What have I missed?

    I think the filming, lighting, editing and acting are all 99% of perfect here. You create a fantastic seductive and sinister atmosphere here. The only jarring moment for me was the cut to the lampshade at 2.20 where the colour balance seemed to change (I don't think it did, but that shot suddenly seemed a lot "whiter"). Otherwise, I can't' fault it for looks. I just wish i knew what I'd missed.

    Great job.

    As always thank you very much Tim, I really appreciate your review About the plot, you pretty much got the film almost entirely right, the only thing is that in the last scene it wasn't the same guy, it was her next victim, and it was mirroring the opening scene.

    I was not even aware that the actors looked alike! Maybe the darkness of the scene contributed (I think I had that same issue before in other film i made a couple of years ago) Now I'm definitely gonna keep that in mind for my next film! Thanks again my friend!

    Yeah... the whole thing was meant to be somehow ambiguous, but I think I might have gone a bit too far!
    I was mainly focusing on the visual athmosphere over the plot but still... I agree with you. Thanks for watching, i really appreciate it!

    LOL! Originally I thought they were different, but the fact that you only credited two actors made me think I'd got it wrong and it was the same character at a later time!

    Have no idea what I just watched. No clue. Had to read the explanation to work it out.

    Keep hold of that actress, though. She has huge potential.
