Well worth watching....thoughtful and thought-provoking.
16 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've watched this twice now and I am still discovering things about it as I mull it over in my my mind.

This is the kind of thing TV did in the 'golden days' where writers, directors, producers and actors were able to experiment and stamp a certain amount of quality on the broadcasting channels before mindless, financially cheap, safe and brain-numbing pap became the drip-feed of torpor that TV serves up today as it sells the viewers to the advertisers for increasingly lengthy (and seemingly synchronised) advertising breaks.

Today, writers etc., have to scrabble round trying to raise finance to make these kind of short play-lets. The fertile breeding ground of the sixties and seventies has been lost to us....and it is a great loss.

This film, in its time-limit, says a lot about the casual-ness of death in a period of unbelievable destruction and the effects it would have on relatives. This is the distilled story essence of films like Gallipoli and Beneath Hill 60 etc., which took longer to stress their point (not a criticism, as I enjoyed those kind of films).

Whether one believes in ghosts or the afterlife doesn't really matter in this case. It is a well produced, written and directed short that doesn't disappoint. Graham Brisset (not a professional actor, I believe) is outstanding as the soldier. His voice and facial expressions as he comes to the realisation of what has happened (to him) are just spot-on.

This script (and the compressed area of action & dialogue) would make a wonderful stage play for an amateur or school production.
