Another Great Review of The Other One at the Milwaukee Film Festival!

Kat Froehlich, DJ for 88Nine Radio Milwaukee, saw the first screening of The Other One at the Milwaukee Film Festvial and had some great things to say about it! Here's one of our favorite sections from the review:

"I was frustrated for the 24 hours following this film, but now that I’ve had a little time to digest my confusion, I recommend seeing it. Despite my difficulties in piecing together the storyline, the theme of coping with death and loss has its shining moments. This film had me talking into the night with my peers about imagery and symbolism; and if a film (or any art form) can get its audience talking about greater meanings in life, then I believe it’s a job well done." 

After the screening, she met with lead actress/Executive Producer Grace McPhillips and had this to say:

"Imagine my surprise when I found myself suddenly face-to-face with “Amber,” who is actually an energetic, smiling, bright and beautiful human with a sparkling personality. There’s something to be said about an actor that’s willing to check his / her glamour at the door to play a role in a less-than-lovely light.  This was one of those rare and refreshing moments."

Review of The Other One at The Milwaukee Film Festival

Writer for the Delusions of Grandeur Move Reviews blog Stephen Milek caught the first screening of The Other One at the Milwaukee Film Festival. Here are some of the highlights of his review:

"My first attempt to write a short screenplay I wanted to try to capture the feeling of depression. Josef Steiff set out to do the same thing in his screenplay for The Other One and succeeded."

The Other One screened to packed houses at both the Times Cinema and the Oriental Theater, photographed above.

"The movie is slow and deliberately paced. It is not your typical ghost story."

"The lady next to kept gasping and everyone was on the edge of their seats. The mystery keeps you wondering and thinking as the movie only gives you a few clues at a time and lets you piece it together."

He gave it a "4/5" score, stating: "I really liked this movie. The mood and pace were on target. The actors all did a great job and the score matched the movie perfectly."
