I wish I made this film
22 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm shocked by seeing the average rating of this film be only a 6.2. Of course, IMDb does skew the results. They'll throw away some 10s because they believe people are trying to give it an artificially high rating but they they'll keep all the 1s (when should be obvious that people are trying to give it an artificially low rating -- how does that make the rating fairer?).

I hate when people use the word "brilliant" for something that is just very good. But this film deserves to be called brilliant. I loved the story, the actors and the cinematography. This film made me feel like I was curled up in bed on a cold winter day with cookies and hot chocolate, enjoying a beautiful escape.

Being a filmmaker, myself, I've seen many, many short films. This one I just can't forget. No film can be everyone's cup of tea but to me, most people who didn't like this film must either like depressing, gritty or violent films or they're just jealous that they couldn't make a film like this.

Heck I wish I could make a film like this but I'm not going to hold my envy against the filmmaker.

I'm giving it a 10.
