UK FILM REVIEW
"Bittersweet is an incredibly well-handled and well-judged movie that’s both thought-provoking and entertaining and has one of the most poignant endings of a short film I’ve seen this year".

"Put an endlessly chatting boy and a despairing man together, and the chances are you’ll either find your hands inching for the gun or the popcorn. But director Max Mir’s Bittersweet offers something more. Bittersweet is a dramedy filled with situational comedy, witty one-liners and surprisingly heartfelt dialogues, well delivered".
"It all starts with a little boy who saves an elderly pastry chef from an extreme gesture, on the screen, and ends with a prestigious award to a director and screenwriter"
