Still very powerful
21 February 2001 | by (New Orleans, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

The argument that it's wrong to kill or injure animals just for the fun of it could hardly be made more effectively or powerfully than in this simple, short film. Despite its age, it's lost none of its power to grip the emotions.
