Old, but story is fine for a short movie
13 May 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Don't expect a single special effect or any glamorous settings. It is a budget movie, so do not expect a Hollywood production.

The movie just tells a story about a boy from the start of his life until his youth.

The movie takes place in a dark and grim world. Maybe looking a bit post apocalyptic. In this world the currency you pay for goods is time. And when no more time then you die.

The actors do a good job.

I can recommend watching the movie. If you do not like the movie then you do only waste 40 minutes :-)
