This short is disturbing, challenging and thought-provoking. It will make every viewer think long and hard about age, and, in particular about the experience of dementia, and how we, the "younger set" regard and treat those who have dementia. The tale of Eva, and her young life in Poland in the Second World War, recalled by her now as she lives in a care home is distressing, as much by it's brevity and lack of detail, as by its' clarity. The behaviour of her clearly fond family, and her distance from their very modern way of life, with its' bewildering technology is heart breaking. How do we treat older people? How do we try to help people with dementia to understand the changing world? This is an excellent film and will be an invaluable tool for those who seek to understand the life of someone with dementia, and hope to make it as good as it can be.
