Interesting little short that asks more questions than provides answers; crafty!
11 February 2009 | by (fairview, nj) – See all my reviews

A FITTING TRIBUTE (2007) In this crafty British short a young reporter-wannabe is given the disheartening task of interviewing recently bereaved people about their loss and is taken to task by his senior mentor who forces him to prove himself by not taking no for an answer. Upon visiting "Mrs. Wright" he discovers instead of the expected grieving, sadness, anger and confusion a woman who welcomes him whole-heartedly into her home. Obviously a comedy of errors...but at what cost. Craftily produced with a tinge of Rod Serling's classic TWILIGHT ZONE with the O.Henry twist of being careful of what you should wish for. Requires several viewings to appreciate the delicate genius of execution.
