An outstanding short that deserves an Academy Award Nomination!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
6 February 2006 | by (Toronro, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film deserves to be amongst the titles of the greats. It is full of insightful moments of fear and compassion in such a short yet powerful journey. The story takes place during World War Two, as an older Jewish, man played by Michael Lerner, gets on to a train in order to escape Nazi occupied France only to be left at the mercy of a German Officer. At this point the character played by the wonderful Wendy Crewson gets involved.

This piece is based on a true story and superbly acted by both Lerner and Crewson, with superb cinematography by Mitchell T. Ness. It is beautifully directed by the great up and coming director Anthony Green who is hugely talented and who will, at this rate, be at the top of his game in no time soon.
