Storyline

A fable of a young boy who is coming of age in the most peculiar of circumstances. Tonight is the very first time his Papa and Grandpa are taking him to work. In an old wooden boat they row far out to sea, and with no land in sight, they stop and wait. A big surprise awaits the little boy as he discovers his family's most unusual line of work. Should he follow the example of his Papa, or his Grandpa? Will he be able to find his own way in the midst of their conflicting opinions and timeworn traditions? Written by Anonymous

Gently pleasing even if it is a bit too obvious for my taste
16 November 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One can be misled when one reads a lot of glowing reviews for a short film and in this case it is best not to raise your expectations too high based on the very good reviews on this site. For sure this is a nice short film with heart and imagination, but it is not the opening 10 minutes of Up nor anything like it. On one hand we have a coming of age story and on the other we have a rather imaginative story set in space. This mix is an odd one and it doesn't totally work as either if I am honest – although it does do well enough as both to a certain extent.

The situation is a bit too obvious in how it spells how the "different paths" the boy can take and how he could also take his own – it was obvious to the point of detracting a little bit from the content, because I felt it was not as clever as it could have been. The moon based stuff is quite charming though and I liked it as an idea, although again the link to the coming-of-age aspect was a bit too spelt out, almost as if the film doubted my ability to get it and thus overcompensated for my stupidity with heavy visual indicators.

It still looks very nice though and has a warm charm to it; shame it wasn't a little bit more subtle with it though.
