Rare Excellence
9 April 2009 | by (Luton, England) – See all my reviews

I cannot believe that so much pure excellence was crammed into less than 15 minutes of film. It's simply a masterpiece, lovingly crafted, beautifully shot, perfectly acted. I rarely gush over a film but in this case I have to. It's a touching story of an old man and his young relative reminiscing on the day of a funeral about the day in the old man's past where he took on a legendary giant pike in a nearby lake. How this is told and played out takes you on story that is filled with humour and many rich and unexpected moments. It left me with a great warm and uplifted feeling, some two hour films costing millions easily fail to do that. The art of the short film needs to be rediscovered.
