A story that will bring you the compassionate facet of all of us
22 March 2015 | by (UK/USA) – See all my reviews

In a world...yes, it sounds like a movie, but, in a world of sometimes too much cacophony with adverts and sensationalistic images, we may forget the true meaning of the Human condition: to do the best with who you are and what you have and to love and be loved. Garnet frost story is unbelievable touching as it is someone redeeming himself for some unresolved finished actions towards jobs or even trying his dream. Without to tell the story, what I can say it that from the cinematography to the insight of someone's uniqueness sprinkled with a good dose of eccentricity, you will be just in awe of this film: it should be on any college curriculum to show how special people can be, even when it might not be obvious from the start.The genius of Director Ed Perkins in humbling, the passion for that project of Producers Simon Chinn and John Battsek are inspiring. The editing of Paul Carlin is masterful and the music of J. Ralph is mesmerizing: a must to uplift your soul and touch your heart forever...
