Lovely little tale
3 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This short film was set in Wales and had some beautiful scenery. The story was well written and well cast. Although the film was on a low budget I thought the acting and the directing was brilliant. The little boy Liam was great and so were the other actors. It would be nice to see this short film on Television, as an inspiration to old and young. Stories like this should be seen and aired more often, as the little boy's fate and expectation should be seen by the youth of today - the vulnerability is something to think about instead of all the violence and hatred in so many modern films. There was no actual violence, and no swearing, which is a rare thing today, so I gladly give my vote, it was well worth watching.
