CGiii Comment

As good as it gets!

To pull this off required great skill and immense talent...Mat Johns has both.

The premise may seem ridiculous, the execution is most definitely not.

Everything is faultless...but, it's the actual tone of the film that makes this so special.

A rare talent and a beautiful, beautiful [faultless] film.

No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

"The Universe gives. The Universe takes away."
