Storyline

Most is the story of a single father who takes his eight year-old son to work with him at the railroad drawbridge where he is the bridge tender. A day before, the boy meets a woman boarding a train, a drug abuser. At the bridge, the father goes into the engine room, and tells his son to stay at the edge of the nearby lake. A ship comes, and the bridge is lifted. Though it is supposed to arrive an hour later, the train happens to arrive. The son sees this, and tries to warn his father, who is not able to see this. Just as the oncoming train approaches, his son falls into the drawbridge gear works while attempting to lower the bridge, leaving the father with a horrific choice. The father then lowers the bridge, the gears crushing the boy. The people in the train are completely oblivious to the fact a boy died trying to save them, other than the drug addict woman, who happened to look out her train window. The movie ends, with the man wandering a new city, and meets the woman, no longer ... Written by Wikipedia

Outstanding film - EVERYONE should see it
15 May 2005 | by (Atlanta, GA, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of those films that pulls you in and blows you away. Even though I knew the story ahead of time, I was amazed at the emotions it invoked upon seeing.

Everyone should see this film. If you fully understand the film, you cannot help but be changed by it.

I was amazed at how well one is drawn into the story, and the characters' lives. Even the secondary and tertiary characters bring the story alive and fill it beyond what you would expect from a film this short.

Do not be concerned about the subtitles. Personally, I think the subtitles give you just enough distance to keep you from losing the message, while drawing you into the film and making you a part of it (since you have to be an active (reading) participant).
