It's Maxim's birthday. He's 8 years old. He lives together only with his mother in a village not so close to the big city. For his birthday, his mother will take him to Bucharest, to McDonald's. There, Maxim hopes to meet his father.
Maxim Adrian Strinu,
Lit professor and gambler Jim Bennett's debt causes him to borrow money from his mother and a loan shark. Further complicating his situation is his relationship with one of his students. Will Bennett risk his life for a second chance?
I saw this short film prior before viewing Disney's Holes. I thought I was in the wrong cinema when Cracker Bag showed up. But I stayed through the entire length of this piece.
Eddie is young bespectacled girl growing up in Australia in 1980. On the 4th of November she has a special day planned out called Cracker day. She saved money to buy numerous firecrackers just for this occasion. Her mother made a special Cracker Bag (hence the title) for her just to carry the crackers. Simple as this film may be, it had that nostalgia feel to it as I recall wondrous memories of my childhood and yes, those colourful firecrackers.
A film that lights up my heart with fireworks.
