I just recently had the opportunity to watch this short film, and as far as silent films go, I have to conclude that this is one of the best image/story portrayed films I have seen.
The reason is that the film is very well told using pictures. The story is easy to follow all the way through, and this is rare with silent films.
The film is well cast, I like the characters, and it is beautifully shot, I must admit, that I am biased by old type images, and especially like films that are from the early to late 20's, there is something very mature in the imagery and style of these films.
A must see for every student of the arts..
