Let us know what you think! I'd be very impressed with your taste in film if you come out "more" than just "liking" this film. :D

Yea, the budget really suprises me. A great movie with practically no budget at all.

Alright, I just watched it, and I have to say that I loved it!
It's a very clever movie, both in writing as in directing. Deffinately a must-see for the fans!

Yup, its great. And I like how it was kept to a quick 70 minutes rather than trying to stretch things out to fit the typical 90-minute film length.

Probably because they needed to fit the budget and shooting schedule (they shot it over a course of a year. D:) so 70 minutes doesn't surprise me.

I was able to get in contact with one of my classmates who can get me Following! I've never seen the movie before, I don't think it has ever came out here in Hungary, so I'm a bit lucky!

It was only released in the UK.
I'm still hoping to get a copy, I've seen it on YouTube, but I want the DVD. I'm quite lucky that my brother's girlfriend is from Scotland. She was able to get me the Cinema 16 DVD too :)
