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

How do you comment on a film (and do it justice) that has moved you to your core??
30 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

This film is perhaps the most powerful and brilliant piece of film making I have seen in recent memory. I attended a film makers panel at the Maui Film Festival where Garabedian, Director/Writer & Zabka, Producer/Writer shared their experiences in getting the film made. Their stories were captivating, inspiring and ultimately bold. I was astonished to learn that this brilliant, European, Czech language film was made by two young filmmakers from LA!

MOST was awarded Best Short Film - Best Newcomer - and also the Audience Award.
