Film Description
A drama about a man who receives an ill prophecy from a fortune teller and is tormented between love and guilt. A story of betrayal, love and murder...

Some reviewers had some questions about the motivations of the characters and the storyline. I admit that they are blanks that have to be filled in at the moment, but if you wish to know why they do what they do, take a look at the story teller's thread in the forum (the link is in my studio's description).

Thanks for your reviews and feedback! I really appreciate them all!

Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Finally I'm seeing where the power of this game can take you. And you didn't even need voice overs to pull it off! A brilliant story I couldn't stop watching, and character development that really draws you in.

this was a beautifully made and wonderfully told masterpiece! the plot twists never failed to surprise me, the editing was dead-on, and, the one thing that really sets this one apart is that you can feel for and relate to the characters. you feel like you know them, and thats an amazing thing to do with computer software. you really have a gift for storytelling.

Great twists!
Orginality 9/10 At first I thought this was Minority Report lol then it took some lovely twists making it your own.
Plot/Story 9/10 Awesome plot! Ya some questions can be asked, "could this really happen?" Not likely but there ae some strange peeps out there. The twists were great in the movie. I said "o damn" and the last one haha.
Dialogue 9/10 Dialogue was great. Great character interaction and awesome work building up some tension through them.
Editing 8/10 Nothing really overly fancy and at the same time nothing really wrong either. Some of the subs moved a little fast but the lot of them moved at a good pace.
"wow factor" 10/10 I loved it.. I didnt see a lot of things coming which was a relief in viewing your movie. Great job!

45/50 90% 5 Stars..Strong Points: Holy Twists!, Strong tension building dialogue, Wild Plot!!

I can see you truly are someone who enjoys a good plot. The plot here is superb. I'm also glad to see someone make good use of the crystal ball! Very fine editing and costumes. Excellent movie.

***MoMc Review***

I liked your choice of actors.

The script was solid and well written.

The characters got to me, such foolishness, love, greed, lust, deception. I felt at different times, anger, happiness, sadness, frustration.

The only thing that would have improved this film for me, would be if you had a VO in your own language as well as the subtitles.

4.6 stars

This movie is simply devious! There are so few movies nowadays which have a really original and captivating plot. This is one of them. I loved the characters, the plot, and the ingenious double-twist at the end. Another fine example that a movie doesn't need special effects to work!

I was utterly suprised by this one. Well done.

Like many have said, some of the characters actions were a little off. Voice overs could have helped out immensly in this one as well.

As it is though, great work. Look forward to seeing more of your work in the future. 4.4 isn't enough to get a 5, but it's a gorgeous film none the less.

A good movie. Good editing the plot was pretty good. the dialogue was good. The only problem was the plausability. I have a hard time believing that anyone would do the things that the main character did. It just didn't make much sense. Now if he had a history of mental problems... Overall it was well done. keep up the good work.

The story flows nice and has some good twists to surprise the audiance. However it was too unbelievable that he would kill the police officer, that seemed odd.

Nice use of sets. Good simple plot direction. A really nice demonstration of how to use The Movies for story-telling.

I did think it was too long, though. A bit of cutting could have given it more impact.

This movie contains well-written dialogues and a plot with a good potential. There were some downside though�?� It was difficult for me to believe that a person will kill just because he was told he would. And I could not follow the logic behind his decision that killing that cop will somehow get him out of his trouble. (Killing a cop will surely get him into even a greater trouble than killing a civilian would, if anything.) I could not figure out how the police found him so quickly either. At first, I also had trouble with the seemingly omniscience friend who conjured up this unbelievable plan. But then, I realize it was not him, but the fortune-teller who came up with the plan. (After all, she is a fortune-teller as she said.) I thought it might have been helpful if you somehow accentuated this point at the end, hitting the head of the audience hard with a dramatic bang!

Best use I've seen yet of the crystal ball scenes, and an interesting plot. Although, I wonder just how twisted he was to use this admittedly thin excuse to murder a cop. He must have underlying psychological problems..

Posted on February 26, 2006
- darthuv

I liked it, but even with explaination the leading man's shift in character is still very jolting. To quote a friend, "No man is sane when he kills, even in defence it takes an altered state of mind." I see some faint shadows of Dr. Caligari and Minority Report in this story.

Golden Distinction Award Review:
A well crafted plot and it's entertaining value have earned this movie 5 stars. Well done.
If I could offer you a suggestion for improvement it would be to explain why he killed the cop. "Killing someone now will keep me from killing someone later" doesn't seem like a reasonable excuse a sane person would come up with.

Great job! I usually don't like to watch such long movies. The 8 + minutes went by quickly. You kept my interest peeked. It wasn't too bad reading subtitles. VO would of been nice. But how do you do a woman's voice when you are a guy, huh? With out it sounding stupid. I have that problem when trying to have a male voice in my movies. Again, great job!

Excellent story of love and betrayal. I enjoyed how the story was well thought out and corrolated to the plot. I thought the motive behind the murder could have been stronger, but the message was recieved well.

- db4321

Excellent, well plotted and thought out movie with a superb ending. One thing I didn't quite get (perhaps I'm thick) was why your main character killed the cop. I know that this had, supposedly, been foretold, but I couldn't see why he went ahead and did it, anyway. But that's probably more a reflection on me. Otherwise, a great movie.

It was well put together, but the storyline did seem a little far fetched in places. I think I would have liked to have seen better use of music accompanying the scenes, as I found my attention waning round about the middle.

*Spoiler warning*

A change of costume on the lead actress would have been better for the twist to give the impression of some time passing, as she appeared far too eager to accept the friend.

A brave effort none the less with good quality captions that only faltered once or twice in readability. I think given time we can expect better to emerge from this studio.

I thought the movie should have been a bit shorter and there were some weak parts to the plot such as why the main character jumped at the chance to fulfill the prophecy thinking he wasn't noticed but at the same time his victim has made a phone call requesting a lift for the guy.

Surely if he was worried about being noticed he'd have realised someone had just called in his personal details?

Editing was overall very good and I always like a movie with a twist.

Hmmm... the story fails when the main character worries and decide to broke their relation about the fortune teller said... Isn't incredible... Nobody sane acts like this guy lol
The rest is notable, plot, edit, apropiate music... You can try to put voices. Always is better than a subtitles. :)

Very professional, technically good film but a little lacking in tension build up. Early scenes were a bit quick and hard to read. Good story and plot twist.
Few weak, unlikely points that a longer film might have covered, like showing in advance how superstitious he was so as to make it believable when he fell so hard for the prophecy.
Good solid movie.

Please review mine if you have time.

I admit I liked the movie up until the ending. The only reason I cannot give you five stars is because I can't see the motivation for his friend's betrayal. But maybe I just missed something. Anyways, keep up the good work!

This was very well thought idea. The film was more of drama to me, than a thriller. The dialog was great, and so was edit. The flow had some issues, it tend drag in few parts. But overall, this is a great piece of work. - 4 stars

Great story! It reminded me of the old "Twilight Zone" TV show, if you've ever seen that. My only question is why Arthur was so willing to believe the fortune teller. Also, a little of the dialogue in the bar at the beginning could have been cut. But these are minor things. I really enjoyed this movie, especially the surprise ending.

Posted on January 28, 2006
- chagidiel

Great movie! Terrific story. The storyline itself is worth a 5.
Theres some small reasons to why I didnt give the movie 5 stars though, wich is really to bad, since its really worth 5 stars.

I think you would enhance the feeling even more with VO.
I think the ending was somewhat to long. As an audience you know whats to come after the money exchange. Everything after we see Gav walking with the roses is just unnescasary.
Considering the main characters world comes tumbling down, the story ties together and a destiny is fulfilled at the murder scene, as an audience you want it to be nothing less then epic. Now the murder scene is great, but not epic.

Apart from that, its a great story, which grabs you and then never lets you go.

You started off great with this movie. The flashback with the narrator refering to a mysterious event is a tried and true way to hook the viewer, which is what it did. The reason I didnt give you 5 stars is because there were 3 parts of the plot that I found hard to believe. The first is that anyone would take their fortune so seriously that he'd leave the one he loves over a fortune from a fortune teller. Second, I didnt really get why he decided to kill the female cop. The third, is why would his love be so happy to get flowers from Gavin when she just got her heart broken.
