WATCH: Incredible 11-Minute Maltese Film That's Totally Worth Your While

Isn't this some of the best acting you've seen from Malta?

A young filmmaker has released an 11-minute short film that's not only gripping and powerful, but also a wonderful showcase of Maltese talent.

Directed by John Paul Agius, Il-Qrara (The Confession) stars Michael Sciortino as a priest and Peter Galea as a stranger unravelling his past. 

The dramatic film ends with some brilliant Maltese rap from the band Marmalja

Il-Qrara made it to the official selection at the Hollywood Film Competition, Los Angeles Cine Fest, Las Vegas Galaxy Film Awards and Legends of Hollywood Film Festival.
