Best comedy short I've ever seen!!!! 10 stars...
26 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen thousands of shorts at festivals around the world and this is positively one of the BEST short films I've ever seen. It was nominated for the Palm d'Or and Cannes International Film Festival in 1999 and I can't understand how it didn't win?

The production value of "Food For Thought" is awesome and more importantly it has a great story that is highly entertaining.

If you like comedies, this is for you. If you haven't seen this film I believe it's still available for viewing on IFILM.COM.

This short is a MUST SEE for all short film lovers. I give it a PERFECT 10 and I'd give it more if I could!!!

Bravo to all the filmmakers of this wonderful little film.
