This is such a great short. I was really struck by it when I had a chance to see it during the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival and if it plays at a festival near you I highly recommend it. It amazes me that, in just a few minutes, this simple story tackles complex emotional topics that cause you to ask fundamental questions about life and death that we don't often consider. The story is filmed in such a way that the quality of the lighting and the setting and pace of the story serve to place the viewer in a contemplative mood. Nothing happens so quickly that the ideas presented in the film seem rushed nor so slowly that the story becomes boring. The ending arrives soon enough without belaboring the point or trying to find all of the answers to the questions that are raised. My only regret is that this film is not distributed on DVD so others can experience it as well.
