So moving...
12 May 2014 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This incredible film just stays with you. I found myself thinking about the story, the characters for weeks after seeing it. For a film to stay in ones thoughts for as long as The Phone Call did is remarkable in today's era of throw away entertainment, but the fact that this was achieved in a short film format is utterly astounding.

Heartfelt acting, a smart script, beautiful simplicity in the cinematography all come together perfectly. Only using Jim Broadbents voice and not showing him on screen was a masterful and audacious stroke.

I hope the guys who made this have more that in store, the world could certainly use it....
