Fantastic, can't wait for full-length film
29 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie captures all of the elements of a full-length film in under 30 minutes. I has a bit of dark imagery that is brilliantly balanced with quite signs of hope (like when the wind gently turns the windmill in the other direction). This film if certainly one to watch over and over. My kids watch it almost everyday. The way in which the director uses silence and imagery to crate the emotion is amazing. The actors in silent reflection is just as important as the scripted words in this thoughtful masterpiece. Addtionally, the soundtrack (song at the conclusion of the film) is very catchy in almost a pop kind of way. With any luck a soundtrack will be released.
