A heart-warming short.
26 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

I have learnt a lot about the film industry from Chris Jones and by watching this film I can see very clearly that he knows what he is talking about and he has created a remarkable piece of film. So much emotion and beauty is a tall order for a short film but he has managed to execute it wonderfully. A very heart-warming story performed with much feeling and honesty. A lot of credit does go to the actors who seemed to have put a lot of hard work into their performance and have made this film as good as it can be. Quality acting, quality directing and quality writing. There is very little more one can ask from a short film.
