PRESS & REVIEWS
"Edward Palmer’s achievement is to make a film, ‘Hippopotamus’, that is quite mesmerizing and to do so with a minuscule budget. The casting and the acting is exemplary and the production has none of the tell tale signs that so often reveal a micro budget production for what it is. It just proves that a good film is made using ideas and with a passion rather than by throwing money at the screen.”
