Subtle yet provocative....
29 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My husband and I, both filmmakers, were fortunate to catch this gem at the LA Film Festival recently. We were both stunned by the beauty of not only the story but also the performances as well as atmosphere. Most shorts lack substance or hit us over the head with a punchline. The film was eloquent, thought provoking and above all captured teen angst in 1979 with such an intelligent aptitude for storytelling. It made us nostalgic about our teenage years and the uncertainty of the world at that time. It also made for a timely message in today's time and the world we live in. The score and music in the film also nicely added to the period as well as the beautiful moments of snowflakes floating in the sky. It was refreshing to see something subtle yet provocative.
