Review: The Sweet Hand of the White Rose (2010)
First of all I´d like to thank Davide Melini for contacting me and suggesting that I should take a look at his film. How many times have you had a bad day? How many times have you thought you would run away from everyone and everything? That is exactly what happens to Mark (Carlos Bahos). In order to forget about a heated discussion with his girlfriend, he decides to get in the car and go far away. But a little mistake will change his reality forever... The Sweet Hand of the White Rose is written and directed by Davide Melini. The acting is average, there is some nice imagery, good camera work and editing and a unsettling atmosphere in some scenes but the soundtrack is a bit uneven, from creepy and effective to the opposite but beware this is not a straight horror short, instead it has a deeper meaning and symbolism which I won´t go into here because I don´t want to spoil it for you.
This review is based on a online source uploaded by Davide Melini, you can watch The Sweet Hand of the White Rose on http://www.youtube.com.
Rating: 2½ out of 7. The Sweet Hand of the White Rose isn´t bad but I was probably expecting something different but please give it a chance and check it out.
