Film Description
(Drama) Rinalino Filmarino proudly presents "Letting Go", a film that will fill your heart with love, heartbreak and healing! A modern silent movie meant to tantilize the mind leaving the unexplained details to the individual creative mind.
The pace and the duration of the film is completely dictated by the music. I added scenes that compliment new instruments and voices so I beg for some patience as the plot is built up. Please turn up the volume while enjoying!

***I've seen the remark often, so I thought I'd comment it: The two scenes at the end are not very visual at the end in the internet. One is where she is sad, in the other she waves to him saying goodbye.- Thats why it's double.
The issue with too many fades is sometimes unintentional. Considering there are three scenes that I had no fades added in which they now appear, I conclude that it must be a bug. The others are fully intentional and fully approved by our cat.

Addendum: All music tracks used in this movie have been found at http://www.magnatune.com and are licensed according to their non-commercial statement found here: http://www.magnatune.com/info/licensing. The song is called "Immrama", the artists name is "Stellamara".

Holy cow! This is by far one of the most amzing movies I've seen yet. Your choice for the background music was exceptional. With the over-emphasis on a movie has to have voice overs to be considered good, you not only proved that wrong, you also showed even subtitles aren't necessary. Simply Incredible!

Where is a ten star button when you need one. This is without a doubt one of the absolutely BEST FILMS HERE!!!!! No need for subtitles. No need for VO. The music and excellently edited scenes tell ,what is without a doubt, one of the best shot movies I think I will see. Sorry if I am repetetive, but I am just trying to give praise where praise is definately earned. Take the five and multiply it MANY MANY times.

Simply Breathtaking! The editing was superb. I had no idea that you could do so much with The Movies! The story itself was perfect and the music really supported the story.

Amazing...the BEST example of what can be done with this game. Such a sad but uplifting film. I sincerely hope this gets the hot pick of the week because everyone needs to see this film.

At first, I didn't think I would like this movie at all, but having actually watched it I can say that this is the first movie on TMO that I actually cared about. The editing is the best I've seen so far and the music, while not something I'll be listening to on my own time, definately fits perfectly. The effort alone is worth 5 stars, great movie. I might even get pissed when somebody eventually one stars this.

I wouldn't call this this an art film myself. It's basically a film driven by music. A story so well thought out that voices are really not necessary for this piece. The music itself fit this piece perfectly and gives a sense of sadness and calming at the same time. I'm all for originality and boy does this have it.

it's ok... but why would someone randomly shoot her in the street? Didnt make sense there felt you could have worked on that, also it was very simalr to what dreams may come so not that original - but well done for a brave attemptof not putting any music on - you would get slaughtered usual here for that - but you didnt congrats

i agree with some other ppl sayiong about it having no voice or anything. cruddy storyline. ive seen ur other films and their gr8 so why go and spoil that by making this crap film.

First of all let me say that I'm not a great Fan of 'Art Movies'.
Growing up in Germany will do this to you, because you get to see to many movies that call themself art but mean to say lack of skill.
Nonetheless I found your movie to be done in a quite unique and skillful way.
It's in my opinion an Art Movie in the best sense of the word.
The Pictures and the music really moved me, what more can you expect..?
Yes the unintentional fades subtrack from the overall experience, and I noticed on one of my own movies, during Post, that if you set a fade and afterwards cut or move a scene or add new ones, that those fades sometimes wander, mayhap that is what happend to you.

Before I saw this movie I thought that you could not tell a story in The Movies without using subs/vo. Your skill has proved this to be wrong. Very clever use of sets and actors and great choise of music. This movie had a calming effect on my mind.

Everything about this movie was awsome! You did wonders with making a story without any subtitles or VO and I think it's great, there were no need for words or voices because the music and scenes told the whole story. I think some people expect subtitles and VO's because they can't form the story in their heads or expect them to be there just because The Movies offers them to you. A movie like this can tell many different stories depending on how a person views it. I think you did above excellent work on this movie!!

This is very well done. I especially liked her "transitional" sequence. Good idea to go silent/without subtitles. I think that is what really drove the movie and made it work.

Very creative.
Cut***** outreaching
Editing***** outreaching
Plot*** The plot is a little bit to crazy for me. It don´t make any sense.
VO/Music/Sound**** Phantastic Music, but for a music video there´s too much action and for a real movie there´s to little plot.
Impression**** I got really impressed by your editing and cut.
Over-all**** 4 Stars

Ahh, Leaving the viewer's imagination to fill in the gap. Where has that concept gone? Well this movie is catapulting it right back into our faces. Very good movie. No Voices? No Subtitles? Then no Script right? WRONG. Very well placed scenes to go with the music. Very Emotional story. Realistically put to where the everyday person could relate.

A Religious Experience. A Must See AND a Must Listen!! If you wanted to test your sound system with some opera/Angelic tones, Then this is the movie for you.

You achieve quite a beautiful effect, just by concentrating on the flashes of light on dark streets, and the flash of raindrops on the ground, with the pulsing music beneath.

This is by far the best film I have watched on this website. I watched it twice, Then I showed it to a friend, both of our reactions after we watched it were: "Man, I'm sad now!" Well done! Very well done! If you could, what is the name of that song you used?

Don't know what to say really, but this film really stuck a cord. buth visually and with the beautifull music. there's a few weak spots, ofcourse, the fades (even if it's a bug) and the darkness of the ending scenes are 2 that imidiatly spring to mind (tho that's a technical limitation as well) still an amazing piece of work tho...

this needs to be at top for a long time, it does not need words to put the story in your mind. the music was so fantastic,it made the tale of love and death and what is beyond too.....this has to be the best movie on here,it did not need subs or voice overs.(Fantasic keep this up!!!!)

Beautiful film, excellent soundtrack.
Carrying the body to the funeral is a bit weird, think you should have cut that scene.
The repeated scenes are a great touch and you dont need any subtitles or VO at all.

well the editing i didn't think was that great....and i felt you missed a big selling point when the guy was able to talk to her ghost....him carrying her to the graveyard was a little weird and at the end you had 2 scenes that were the same....i do like however how the end shows what was going on in the beginning.

there is nothing bad i can say about this movie....you did an amazing job, the story was genius, gr8 writing, and the way u shot it was amazing 2, even though some of the fades were unintential, they still worked out well, the music was just so chilling, it really set the tone of the whole story...and the title is perfect for this movie
im looking forward 2 seeing more from you :)
PS.this would make a great reality movie, if u have the equipment and the resources, i would recommend making it an actual film, all ya need is a camera, some actors and a movie editor like adobe premiere :)

Wow. That was amaizing. It was a real work of art. The only film on this site that I would give 5 stars to and it has heart. 1 question though, what is the song called, and where did you find it on www.magnatune.com?

I can't believe that I just saw a movie created using a game... that was amazing... breathtaking... blew me away. Five stars (I'd give it 1,000,000,000,000 but there aren't that many stars available)! This is definately true creativity and imagination. Music choice fantastic, storyline wonderful, and the acting was phenomonal! This is definately a movie that deserves to be number one on the charts! Best movie I've seen this year!

- Frankmancusojr

Wow.. Technically, the technical side of this movie is sublime, truly amazing!
The thing is, there isnt really too much to this story.. I mean its beautiful and all, but its really the music that makes it outstanding, right? I know everybody hear falls for a movie like this, but just remember that a song in a movie is supposed to make the movie even better, not the other way around, then its a music video. But may I say, you have made a beautiful music video!

Very nice. I like the choice of music; very haunting. The issue you're having with fade ins/out out of place is one I also encountered. You have to edit the movie first, then add fades. If you edit after you've added fades, the fades move and appear in the spaces where scenes were before you cut them.

Wonderful. Another great film from your studio. I was riveted to the screen through the entire duration. In some ways it is better than the Cyberphunk series--maybe its the music or the directing. I just really enjoyed this film and I thought the fades worked in my opinion. double shot at end was a bit off, but who cares--this is an excellent piece of work. Both you and your wife are an excellent team.

The music was...intrigerend (don't know the spelling of the english word for it and couldn't find a similar one, but I guess you know what I mean). And the storyline is what we all should know but have forgotten. ;-). My first 5-star rating I think.

This is everything I love about the Movies all in one film. Subtlety, Strength of emotion and a strong plot. Also technically brilliant. This inspires me to achieve high quality. I'd put this way above King Kong 1940, and I guess I'm not alone in that.

Das war glaube ich der erste Film hier ohne Untertitel oder VO,
der mir gefallen hat. Du hast wirklich sehr viel Talent was das "setzen"
einer Stimmung angeht und bei der Nachbearbeitung sieht man,
das du dir viel Mühe mit den Schnitten und vor allem dem inteligenten "Neuandordnen" der geschnittenen Szenen gegeben hast.
Die Musik war wunderbar entspannend und hat perfekt gepasst.
Etwas irritiert hat mich die Szene als er ihre Leiche zum Friedhof trägt,
vlt. bin ich kleinkariert, aber irgendwie kam mir da immer der Gedanke das man kein Mordopfer entfernen kann und die Leiche erst obduziert werden muss
und wie schon erwähnt die doppelte Szene am Ende, da hatte ich den Eindruck
die wurde beibehalten um die Länge des Films mit der der Musik
in Einklang zu bringen.

Simply fabulous again...
There are fade and technical issues (I have these with my scenes, too) but these cannot detract from what is a wonderfully inventive use of the game engine and a stand-out film in its own right.
where was I?
Oh yes...
... a film which comfortably makes me feel ashamed for somehow not coming to see the work from this studio earlier...
5 stars.

Yeah, this is how it should be. The whole movie is ambience. I have watched it three times to make sure I wasn't just rushing out a vote.
It must have been a blast seeing this baby come together.
I am insane about editing, and this movie has nailed it.
It appears that the movie is edited AROUND the soundtrack, which is cooler still.
Time for me to return to the drawing board:) and get my next movie cooking!

The film shows that voiceovers and subtitles arent needed, and the music definately adds to the atmosphere of the film. Although I enjoyed it, I felt there were too many fade ins/outs, just personal preference though, overall I found it very entertaining.

Nice movie. Great music. Shades of "Ghost". I watched twice to try and find out why she was killed but it is not made clear. I know you left the details for the viewer to imagine but I feel this is one point that should be made clearer or at least left a clue - if you did - I didn't get it !

Very nice film - Definately artistic and original. I was slightly annoyed by all the fades in the beginning, though, and honoestly i would prefer more story. The music does a super job of captivating you in the film and should be honored for that. and standard music on this film had easily brought down te average, i guess. Anyway, 3 stars; 1 for originality, 1 for music and 1 for making it all come together. Good work!

Its pretty hard to express emotion in a game that has canned scenes. You have done it. Truely remarkable.

Very nicely made, though, how can this person be so depressed already after just knowing her? I mean... it's not like they've had quite a big past together ^^

But I liked it very much and therefore giving it a big 5 :)

From Critic's Corner hosts Jeremiah and Dr. Googlestien
What a movie that had alot of romantic influence in it. The music made the words of the movie seem existent. The movie went to further lengths as it progressed as a movie that had a horror mixed with dark comedy inside of it. It was a dark movie that was blended beautifully into a hit. It's the only movie that redifined the silent movie genre and it's the beautifulest in TMO. It deserves our rare four stars for a rising and upbeat named film. Nice flashes added to the touch. It was missing some plot towards the end, but a movie that has something. So far Sparrow Productions has some real life as a major studio.

A very impressive drama tour-de-force. Movies like this rejuvenate my faith in TMO.

Are people insane or something!? What's with the 4 star ratings? Oh well.
If there was anything wrong with this movie, I didn't notice! I was so stuck into the movie I was oblivious to anything else. The music was just perfect.(where'd you get it? lol). Post-production work was brilliant. The story was beautiful.
This is the best movie I've seen so far. Wow, just wow. 5.5 stars, or 6, or something, whatever! The phone rang when I was 2 thirds through; I got so pissed off! I'm gonna watch this again.
Are you in the movie industry? Just thought I'd ask.

Very nice. Obviously alot of hard work and effort went into that and it stands out as an excellent and original film.

Quite good. Still needs a little more editing to compress down slightly (between music and extra long scenes, started to cause tedium for me anyway). Music and story were well done.

Cool music video style story. For the most part, the editting was good, but some scenes, the editting seemed off (some special fx scenes).

Preety good. Give you a five so as not to bring you down. Well edited in a music video sense.

It's really hard to get the Sims characters to evoke anything that isn't slightly comical, and this film did a great job of creating actual drama. Nicely done!

VO vs. No VO = No VO definitely wins here. A well done move, maybe a few improvements that could be made here and there, but altogether thought-provoking and entertaining without a single word spoken.

Wow. A remarkable piece - lovingly crafted and expertly edited.

Wow, i never thought it was possible to have a movie that long without dialog and not have me lose interest and you did some nice things with your editing. Only giving 4 because i do think it couldve been alittle shorter becuase i noticed you used some scenecs multiple times in a row and it looked strange, but other than that little thing this was great!

Did she just meet the guy and start making out on the street? Gets shot almost right away then goes into after life mode..hmmm very fast. I didn't get a sense of who the main character was, nothing to do with voice or subs. It was good and has modern elements to it, but again a heart string puller that people always give 5 stars.

Wow! That was amazing - excellent work! It looked like there may have been a few editing issues - a few scenes went by too fast to tell what they were. Despite that this was the best movie I have seen on TMO so far!

Ending was repetitve in my opinion. Excellent music to add to the atmosphere. Congrats on a great film

I'd of perhaps tried to imply a sense of time passing between the meeting and the murder of the girl to add further resonance (perhaps the couple walking scene)but otherwise aside from the double shot at the end a pretty flawless and emotive piece.

The part where you see a certain person carrying a body to a certain place spoiled the effect quite a bit. Until then, the realism was what made this so affecting, that brief, unnecessary scene pushed me out of the movie and reminded me of the limitations. Too bad you couldn't have left that part out. The ending, with the same scene repeating, was also a bit weak.

Otherwise, outstanding work!

The music makes the movie. Editing also does a great job of setting the mood. Way too little time was spent on establishing the relationship between the couple, though. A series of very brief cutscenes would have made the point that they had fallen deeply in love (picnic, bedroom scene, walk on seashore, and so forth).

Always feel excited when seeing something NEW in The Movies! All we know our resources are limited, but with creative editing and plots, we can always produce something like "Letting Go"! Excellent! fine piece of Art!

I came in to watch this because the premise sounded a lot like my Until Death Do Us Part. We even used a lot of the same scenes. But I do bow to this work. Nicely done, and the music fits superbly. I was hoping to only give it 4 stars so as not to sabotage myself, but what can I say, you deserve the full 5.

The Stardard of movies for this site has yet again been raised. This movie alone should convince Lionhead to add the Drama genre. Bravo. simply Bravo

For what you set out to achieve I think you should be truly pleased with yourself. This was a moving, thought provoking movie that stirred me where so many have let me down. Brilliant story, editing, production and the choice of the music was overwhelming. This is only the second movie I have downloaded and great credit needs to be given to you. This is easily a top 5 movie, excellent work well done and keep it.

At first, I didn't think I would like this movie at all, but having actually watched it I can say that this is the first movie on TMO that I actually cared about. The editing is the best I've seen so far and the music, while not something I'll be listening to on my own time, definately fits perfectly. The effort alone is worth 5 stars, great movie. I might even get pissed when somebody eventually one stars this.

Outstanding! With all the kung-fu ninja zombie alien films about, your movie really is a different approach on things.

I like how you let the music tell the story, and the opening sequence was outstanding. Voiceovers would have been nice, even if only a few to add another dimention to this film. Overall a great film with great editing and original sotry line.

This is a lovely film..
I was impressed straight away from the opening sequence with the angel stood in the rain with the photographers snapping away .... really nice sequence m8

As the film progressed the story followed , as you said in your write up, at a pace in keeping with the music (you may wanna list where the music is from or if you made it , whilst i wont deduct for copyrighted stuff - i have seen alot of reviewers that give instant 1* because of it - and LH will pull you offline straight away without an explanation from you somewhere to cover your backside :P)

The music is awesome also

The film didnt need VO or subtitles - i was sceptical at first if it was going to work - but you pulled it off easily :P

the editing is very good and very clever - it must have taken you friggin hours to make m8

If i was to make a comment - then i would suggest not so much fading or remove the really really short (1 second) fades as it almost becomes annoying but never gets to the stage of switching your film off - because it's so nice to look at.

really really nice m8 - well done

5* indeed - and im really a tight fisted bu**er when it comes to 5*

thanks for uploading it
