      Serena Donadoni The Cinema Girl In this prosaic setting, with ordinary people, Just Before Losing Everything builds to a level of white-knuckle tension that's usually found only in thrillers. Rated: 5/5 Feb 15, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Xavier Legrand's short film Avant que de tout perdre is an emotionally driven story about a woman trying to escape from the life she's become a prisoner of. Legrand's stereotypically subtle french style coincides perfectly with the narrative being told. It's a rather slow moving film at times and could explore the themes presented further, but it's a very solid short film. Bottom line, I'd recommend it, especially to fans of French filmmaking. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Draws you in over the course of the initial 20 mins and then grabs you by the throat and does not let go! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Climbs to an edge of your seat thriller that won't let you go until the screen goes dark. Bravo. CDW Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Léa Drucker stars in this high-tension Oscar nominated live-action short. It takes awhile to realize what is going on, why is this woman and her children on the run. You have to read between the lines. The relationship between the two kids and the mom's grocery store co-workers eventually reveals the high stakes of their escape from an abusive husband/father. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member There are some good shorts nominated this year for Best Live Action Short (and then there's Pitääkö Mun Kaikki Hoitaa? which has no reason to be nominated, but let's not get into that). Yet to sit down and watch them altogether, you give up as soon as the credits roll on Avant Que De Tout Perdre. A tense thriller of the every day life, the film burns up the screen and then is gone in almost an instant, knocking any competition to the wayside.
