A very sweet short film!
3 October 2007 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

A little duck named Sean and a little puffin named Puffy (imaginitive...) stand in the grass in Ireland, quite close to the sea

  • and even closer to an ENORMOUS flock of seagulls. Sean cannot help


going off to chase them. Beforehand he tells Puffy "Gulls are stupid!" (that is true enough).

So the film continues on to be a very adorable Irish film, only twenty minutes (yet it seems a wee bit longer). "The First Snow Of Winter" is a story of friendship, survival, danger and sadness, with just a hint of message of regret. You are bound to love this, whether an unhappy businessman, or a happy little wee child or bairn (Guess Scottish and Irish has seeped into this review, eh?).

So admire the luck of the Irish, the animals and the love in this film and you are not likely to be disappointed! Enjoy "The First Snow Of Winter".
