Storyline

A German father's soccer-playing son is hit by a car and dies. The father donates the boy's red jacket to charity, where it ends up in war-torn Sarajevo. The boy's parents are killed, and he almost is. Some UN soldiers find him, and send him to a hospital in Germany. He escapes the hospital, is hit by a car (but unhurt). The driver reads the tag inside the jacket and "returns" the boy to the grieving father. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Excellent short
21 November 2003 | by (Georgia, USA) – See all my reviews

We watched this recently in one of my film school classes and I was greatly impressed. The story is very simple and told in a highly visual style. There is almost no dialogue, which makes this originally German film accessible to non-German speakers like many of my classmates. I was instantly engrossed in the film, from the opening images of the aftermath of a traffic accident. The story is well-paced and not overbearing, as student films have a tendency to be. The photography is nice and even beautiful in several places, but it is never distracting and the story is always the focus. Excellent work.

This is a filmmaker to keep an eye on.
