Magic Kisa (2008)

By Iain Stott in Vote the Movies 

Short Film
Writer/Director: Mathieu Saliva
Cinematographer: Xavier Arias
Composer: Olivier Cussac
Cast: Christophe Laubion, Marie Vernalde, Dominique Bettenfeld, Nathalie Hauwelle
Expertly crafted, convincingly acted, but all too short (there’s more than enough material here for a feature, which would give us a little more time to get to know these interesting charcters), Saliva’s entertaining short film - a who-did-what-to-whom-and-why, following an ex-con, just released from prison, who adopts his twin brother’s identity (wife, child, dodgy deals, and all) - is a blackly comic gem that would suggest that Saliva is a talent to watch.
