Fred is a blind boy who lives alone with his mother. Out of his dull routine, in which nothing ever changes, he speculates continually about the color of things and claims to prefer the color white, which represents for him everything that is unattainable. Written by
I saw this film for the first time in a small Portuguese cinema. It touched me on an emotional level so high I had tears in my eyes. It is truly the most beautiful short film I've seen out of Portugal.
Fredi is a young blind boy living with his mother. He follows a routine life and defines everything in terms of their colors, which he has never seen. On a random Saturday at the park Fredi meets a young girl. They become friends, but his mother fears him having contact with others and wishes him not to leave for the park.
In the span of twenty minutes this film creates suspense, romance, comedy, drama, and amazing character development. If it sounds like I'm babbling, I'm sorry. This is my first commentary and I'm trying my best to communicate my emotion about this film. If you get a chance to see this film, take it! I don't know if a copy exists for home viewing
