A SHORT FILM BY ROBIN POLÁK

ABOUT

„Best International Short goes to Robin Polak’s Speechless.

We found it to be a note-perfect exercise in short filmmaking:

relevant in revealing its uncomfortable truths (but never manipulative),

beautifully acted and genuinely moving.“

JURY DUBLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

PRESS

„A touching reminder of innocence and the power of family“

JULIEN DUBUQUE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

„..Erstaunlich wieviel man in sechs Filmminuten erzählen kann.

Der alles erklärende Gegenschuss ist perfekt getimt und auch die Reaktionen des Kindes und der jungen Frau sind mit einer Präzision inszeniert,

die diesen Kurzfilm zu einem berührenden kleinen Drama werden lassen..."“
