  1. Wah, you really make a touching story Kal. You taught us that regret will comes later, so don’t make a reckless decision. I think your dramatization is good, the music really match the situation of the story, and the actor and actresses act well. I thought this will be a horror story by looking at Morena’s expression at 1:23 haha I was wrong.

    Wow, Kal, this is such a touching story for I had had similar experience with Haikal in that short movie. I laughed so hard when you type “how to break up with your girlfriend” as the keyword in Google, I think omg that was so cruel. But I really like the dramatization for the musics match with the scenes. Great work, Kal.

    When I read the title of this short film and its summary, this is an interesting and touching story. This short film is good even though there is a typo in scene 2, 3, and 8 and maybe the plot is too fast because I expect there will a scene that tells how Bella collapse or maybe Bella and Haikal can meet each other before Bella passed away. But as far as I read this short film is really good and language that is used, it makes reader easy to understand.

    • Thank you very much for your correction :) yes I should more carefully next time. Yes I made it fast because I think that is the way to make the story dramatic and I too lazy to make a longer story.

    Since you foreshadowed the plot, it’s a predictable film I think. Yet, this kind of plot is always touching. I adore your acting in the end of the story Kal, I found it natural.

    And everyone who watches this film, I warn you not to break up with girlfriend that way…. with a hand of Wikihow and no, it’s a no way to put your letter in… the white-plain envelope…….. puhlis not that way. :’]

  9. Woww.. your movie is very touching kal and your editing is really good. But I think the plot is too fast. Maybe you can adding more scene with your girlfriend, Bella. I think your movie is too much scene with your affair, Indy. Overall, I really enjoy to watching your movie kal! Good Job:)
