The best short I've seen in a long time :) !
7 April 2012 | by (Capital, Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

If you like (classical) piano, black humour and losers with a heart, this gem will leave you wanting more... to live more.

Maybe enjoying more films, listening to piano playing and or playing it yourself if you're lucky, and yes, watching out for the unmerciful meek looking stranger :)!

Centered exclusively on Adrien, he's got a husky buddy not very convincing, a sort of love interest and little else. It's a limited world for a guy who's failed at something he values a lot. So he's got to pick up the pieces and start again... changing some personal information in the process :).

Utterly enjoyable!
