This is one of the greatest short films ever made.
19 September 2013 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Though it's true that this is not the type of movie you want to sit down with the family and eat popcorn, the emotional drive of the picture, the story's poignant messages, and the amazing acting of the cast draws you into a world that is both dangerous and unpredictable.

Bucari is able to take you into action and make you feel as if you are a participant in the movie and not just a viewer. The young Noah Silverman is simply extraordinary. I wouldn't be surprised if he wins some awards for his performance in this film.

I give this movie my highest recommendation. Illness is a movie that makes you realize how life is precious.
