A truly emotional piece of work, which everybody needs to see
7 May 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I remembered researching in history lessons about Norfolk during WWII and I came across a story, a story about this small village and the people in it having no option but to leave their homes and say goodbye to their past pretty much. Then randomly i searched for something video-wise on youtube and came across this film. Reasons for my generous rating is basically how original yet so simple "The Lost School" is. Nobody's ever come across a story like this before, especially in Norfolk and more importantly how intelligent the story is. You can tell A LOT has been put into this - time and effort combined. I'm not used to ratings and reviewing but I felt that I had to with this one because I really felt something for this short film and how emotional I really felt for the characters and world in which they lived in more specifically West Tofts village. It's up on youtube. Watch it. I urge you!
