LOSIN’ YOU

Writer, Director, Cinematographer and Editor – Aleksa Ristovic – opens up his film with a pulse and energy that makes the audience feel as if they are on a ride.  The gorgeous visuals in this film are stunning.

Filmed on the Maltese Islands, LOSINYOU is a visual journey.  The Cinematography and location takes your breath away.  Shots of an ‘angry’ ocean – is captivating.

The piece of the puzzle missing from this film is a solid story.

LOSINYOU is about a young female musician (Shannon McEvoy) who is seeking inspiration through her personal memories – which are indirectly connected with the famous landmark that was destroyed in a terrible storm.  Inspiration is reflected through nostalgic moments of her love life.  These emotions will affect her in an attempt to create a beautiful song.

Moments in the film seem repetitive and slow moving.  The film opens with such momentum and movement – that when the transition happens to the beautiful, tranquil setting – it feels like a completely different film.  There needs to be more to move the story forward.  Because of no dialogue in the film, it was replaced with heavy score – which overpowered the film at times.

The female musician, boyfriend and mysterious painter – didn’t hold any depth in terms of relationship.  The characters journey seemed superficial – making it difficult for the audience to care.  What comes to mind is that this film might make a great music video.

In terms of Cinematagrophy, the film is top notch and should win awards.  Sound is also very well done.

Ristovic is somewhat new to the filmmaking scene – but he clearly shows in this piece – how visual a talent he truly is.
