A sad story with every day objects
9 October 2012 | by (uk) – See all my reviews

This is a story told several times before by different tellers. However it achieves a different level through really saddening narrative and using very simple objects like toys or picture frame to help you understand the consequences.

It's a shame that the world is a place full of stories like this however it's fortunate there are people who are willing to tell them to honour the loved ones.

Narrative is in Spanish with a voice over in English - which makes it more effective than using subtitles.

Nominated for short film reward in Bafta but not won it. Still it's powerful and sad.
