Tuzgle is the best short film that I have ever purchased. Running at just over 20 minutes, this climbing-full flick just doesn’t stop. It is French with English subs; but that does not take away from the flow of the story or the absolutely beautiful cinematography. What a breathtaking landscape! I thought I wanted to go to Tuzgle, Argentina until I looked at the location on Google Maps.
I’ll give Tuzgle 4 out of 5 stars. I wonder why the producers only made it 21 minutes long. It looks like there was enough rock in Tuzgle to make a feature film. And with 22 year-old rock climbing sensation, Nina Caprez as the star of the show, where could the producer go wrong?
My only beef with the film is that the language in not kid-friendly. There is one f-bomb and a couple of sh##’s so look out on the subtitles. You may be okay if you don’t speak French and your kids aren’t super fast readers.
Baraka Films produced Tuzgle and it is worth owning. Even if you don’t read French, you can purchase Tuzgle at their website www.barakafilms.com. It is only 5 euros (approx. $6.70 as of 11.30.2011).
