So much in so little time.
24 March 2015 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

An incredibly emotional short film mostly about remorse, letting go of the past, and about forgiveness. Can anyone be defined by his past actions? Could you forgive someone if truly regretful, of anything done in the past?

The soundtrack was good, the cast very well chosen, especially Liam Cunningham, who's performance is just outstanding. I would like to add that as this film is about what I said before it's also about a lot more, with a lot of secondary characters adding something to the story.

Great short film, just perfect as it is, wouldn't change anything about it.
