"Alumbramiento", which beans basically "Birth", is an award-winning 16-minute short film from almost 10 years ago written and directed by Eduardo Chapero-Jackson The language is Spanish, so make sure you get a good set of subtitles if you decide to watch this one and aren't fluent in that language. But I would not say this one is worth checking out. First of all, the action in here and the story are something for a film that runs 6 minutes, not more than twice as long. That's why it dragged on several occasions. Secondly, I believe watching the old lady suffering and slowly dying is pretty painful for the audience and that is why it is even more crucial to construct a quality story around that to keep the audience from being depressed. Being sad is not a problem, but it is also about being entertained and I cannot say I was. Title is fairly pretentious too. The plot twist about letting her die in peace is not bad, but also really more controversial than realistic and I felt realism as painful as it may be was the filmmaker's most crucial objective. He sacrificed it completely with the plot twist and it was not working in my opinion. The only thing positive I can say is that it is a fairly atmospheric watch. The actors cannot be blamed either as they had so little to work with and were basically almost all interchangeable. Don't watch.
