A fantasy-themed drama that delves into the world of video gaming.
4/5

Review

Michael A. Viteritti’s ‘Choice’ is a captivating and inventive short drama that explores the relationship between a young man’s obsession with video games, and his struggle to find his way back to reality. The film follows Manuel Pasca’s central protagonist as he navigates through a series of game-like tasks in an attempt to break free from his virtual reality prison.

Pasca delivers a standout performance, captivating the viewer with his endearing and relatable portrayal of a young man struggling to find meaning in his life. The film’s fantastical elements are well executed, with scenes like the bungee jump from a dam adding to the thrilling and immersive experience.

Daniele Piras’s cinematography is outstanding, bringing a visually stunning quality to the film’s mesmerising set pieces. The only downside for non-Italian speakers is that the film is entirely in Italian, however, it is easy to follow along with the subtitles.

Overall, ‘Choice’ is a well-crafted and imaginative piece of cinema that demonstrates the power of independent film-making. With plenty of room for expansion, the short film would undoubtedly make a great feature-length film. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fresh spin on the fantasy genre.
