Hilarious and Inspiring!
18 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Wow, I was blown away by this short film with Michael Levi Harris in the title role.

With brilliant casting, the plot weaves through daily life in NYC. The charming main character speaks many languages that get him into some interesting and very funny quandaries. He also quickly rediscovers the value of not judging the book by its cover.

Hilarious and touching, this film had me laughing and thoroughly entertained for its entire run of 20 minutes or so. But, it also left me deeply motivated to continue my own journey to learn other languages, and truly inspired at the incredible connections that are gained as a result.

After seeing the film, I couldn't wait to buy it on iTunes and have already watched it again!
