Brilliant!
16 January 2002 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

This film is both tragic & heroic, as it beautifully encapsulates the emotions of an unemployed man desperate for a job. He takes his son along to the town where he has an interview, leaving him in the local cafe to wait, minding their sandwiches. But things go awry for both the father & his son. The emotion in this film is gut-wrenching in the story's simplicity, & is superbly acted by Ian Hart. Truly how shorts are supposed to be made!
