Excellent cinematography. The sparseness of the action lent itself to the philosophical pacing of the inner subtext. Very cool

Yes. Kudos to the filmmaker - David Cassals-Roma. Certainly a philosophical piece that should resonate well with today's generation ( myself included ). However just one small criticism - would have been more convincing and more "in synch" with today's youth/generation IF our male lead had a more supportive family. Perhaps parents/aunts who "backed" the young male instead of him stating " my family did not realise I had big dreams ". The families of the Western, English speaking world in this day and age are very well versed on the "dreams and ambitions" of their young ones as they hear about it quite a bit! Just a thought as I too would like to "save the world" and my family is well aware of my "dreams'.
