Saki
21 December 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

His style. And his special humor. The two traits defining this short film who preserves Gothic crumbs, a young lady with bitter imagination, a family and a labrador and , sure, Martin Sheen in a perfect performance. British atmosphere, nice plot, amusing consequences of lies. and Saki , in his lovely bitter exploration of absurde situations.
