Storyline

In battle-scarred Germany of 1943, a 12-year-old bright-eyed boy, member of the Hitler Youth Organisation, breaks into a ransacked Jewish tailor shop, only to discover, unexpectedly, a petrified Jewish girl hiding. Obviously, she is the enemy, while he is his country's rightful heir. And still, they are standing face-to-face: two youngsters who are worlds apart with nothing in common, yet perhaps this isn't exactly true. Written by Nick Riganas

This is a story about an old man's childhood memory. In the film, first, he visits an old woman's house to meet her and to give a gift. Then, he recalls his childhood memories, and finally, he can meet her and give her a gift. The point I like about this film is that it very little dialog. I was very impressed that we can understand what the film wants to say even if there are only a few lines of dialog in the film. Moreover, I also like the choice of actors because a young actor who is in the old man's flashback and an old actor are very alike. In contrast, in my opinion, the young actress who is also in the old man's flashback and the old actress aren't very alike. However, it is a small problem. I think this film teaches us that we will not forget our childhood memories when we become old.
