A very touching movie that says a lot in its 30 minute length
15 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the moment the film opened I was drawn in to the story of Michael. His internal pain over his past love was evident, and it begged for the empathy that few of us can give unless we have similar histories.

The young surfer, in almost a mystical way, provides Michael a way to re-live his younger love and bittersweet romance, which provides us with a beautiful story that is very touching.

The acting was superb and the cinematography incredible and critical toward telling this story. The musical score complimented the beauty of Australia's beaches. This was a movie that touched me deeply, and I will remember it and recommend it to friends.
