I don't know what to think..
3 April 2004 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I have a soft spot for short films and the likes, so obviously this was one I had to watch..

I'd like to say I liked it, but I didn't get it - a lot in this film was too vague and unclear. It's about 12 year old Linda who is bored out of her mind, and therefore goes to explore the world. Here she meet a man with a weak heart who seems to like her a little more than he is supposed to. *SPOILERS* Here's what nags me - the end of the films is very weak and I'm not really sure what it is supposed to tell. The man climbs uphill after Linda, and suddenly falls over, probably because of his heart condition. Linda goes downhill and holds his hand. And the film ends....I'm sort of missing a point..

A decent attempt of a short film, though...only it leaves you with a big question mark on your head - was is this film about? Grown men getting turned on my underage girls? Yes, probably, but it like the story suddently splits in two ways and this stops the development in either of the stories....sadly..
