Review/ Commentary

Highlights

The Question of Whether It Was A Dream

Guo embraces that feeling of meeting someone and planning out the entire life you could have with them without knowing much about them. And through Chao and Jie, you see a lot of the highs of that euphoric feeling, all the while not knowing if this is all in the boy’s head? If not, more so, hoping it isn’t all in his head.

Overall

What’s Considered For Our Final Rating

Rating: Positive (Worth Seeing)

Girl With A Thermal Gun is the kind of short that can frustrate you. Not because it is bad or feels like a waste of time, but because it gets you so wrapped up that when it starts to unravel and give you back to reality, you realize you were in a dream. One which may not have ended with a happy ending, and it could leave you feeling a bit frustrated.
