Best short docudrama about old age and poverty
6 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

I've never had a film follow me the way this one has. It's riveting, disturbing, and stays with you forever. Everyone should see this film. I don't know why it isn't shown more. It's wonderfully balanced between all the characters; all of them are trying, all of them care in their way, all of them fail because there is just no easy way out of this. Society has set this up, and without a fundamental change in society, so many land up in this situation. Our society is so focused on youth, and is so unprepared for age. The only lucky ones have adequate social connections, family, or money. And quite frankly, there is plenty of proof that money doesn't protect either. Without respect for age, it's a personal crisis waiting to happen, over and over. The look into Mossie's dilemma is the most poignant story of this situation I have ever seen. I keep going back to this movie because a better one has yet to be made.
