Lun Sevnik se v študijski vaji z nizom nekonvencionalnosti ob igri moči protagonistov spretno poigra tudi z gledalcem. S premišljnim suspenzom, izrabo socialnega omrežja, vrhom v “videospotu”, izdelanim konceptom in podobnim – malodane mojstrovina!

Vesna Award
best student film
2020

Režiser Lun Sevnik je s filmom Igra nazorno pokazal, da lahko pripoved gledalca čustveno zadane tudi takrat, kadar je ta hladna, nezainteresirana in oddaljena. Dva fanta, ki pred našimi očmi načrtujeta samomor, v nas izzoveta občutke šoka, jeze in nemoči. Igro je žirija prepoznala kot drzen in izzivalen film, ki svojimi provokativnimi prijemi iz gledalcev iztisne močan čustveni odziv, kar je spretnost, ki uspeva velikim mojstrom filmske umetnosti
