In love with "Does God"
19 August 2004 | by (Guildford, England) – See all my reviews

I loved this film. It's a beautiful film about a young boy trying to come to terms with the fact that he has no father and turning to God in a most unusual way. When his mother tries to explain that God is the father of us all, young Tommy takes it quite literally and compares himself to Jesus Christ. His prayers are addressed to "Dad" and all he longs for is a father of his own to play football with. I won't say any more as I don't want to spoil it for anyone else, but I heartily recommend this film. It will leave you with a warm glow, without descending into clichés or overly-saccharine sentiment. Kevin McKidd and Helen McCrory are great but it was the young actor playing Tommy that made the film for me. I noticed that this film was directed by Mike Walker, who also directed On A Life's Edge - another great short that I saw a couple of years back at the Soho shorts festival.
