The only short film that ever made me cry. The way that everything comes together at the end was so powerful. The actors were top notch and the story was beautiful and very clever. I read a lot more into the film after watching it a second time. There are a lot of subtleties that you don't expect from a short film. I've seen a lot of thesis films from different film schools and I'm usually not impressed by short films but 'eight ball' was one of the best ones I've seen. The soundtrack was excellent too, especially the song in the middle and the end music. I loved the film and I loved the ending. It will bring you to tears. I don't know if they have the DVD online but I recommend getting it.
