Kris Smith does it again....
7 April 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Having had the pleasure of working with the director of this short film,I can safely say that he is a very talented man and I truly believe he has the brilliance to go far. It comes across clearly in this film that's set in the early nineteen forties. It's very believable,not that I was around in them days but it's exactly the way I would picture it to be and nothing seemed unreal. The film tells a very moving story and at points,even had me close to tears and the film portrays,very well,the difficulties of life in them days and how people lived together as a community. There is also some brilliant acting throughout,from the lead actress to the featured extras,they all play their parts very well and give very convincing performances.
