A little depressing
25 May 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was not in the least offensive. I just loss my wife, five weeks ago and the kids lost their mum. I could relate to much of it - the adjustments, preparing for the worst, the eventual loss...

But for some it may prove a difficult watch.

And this is why I don't like reviewing movies on this site. The idea of being forced to make ten lines is silly. It's just using words for their own sake. This is a 24 minute 'short' and what I wrote in those first four lines is apparently not enough.

Now I'm looking for two more lines.

So I can reach the minimum.
