Gorgeous...and a film that will provoke the viewer to think.
This film won the award for Dan Sutter who played Grandpa and was nominated for several others. Of all the shorts in the competition, I think this one is the most polished and cinematic. The cinematography is breathtakingly beautiful and this, combined with the music, made it a lovely film in so many ways. Ryan Todd really deserves a lot of credit for the overall look and style of Climb. It's the story about a sick old man who wants to go back to a place he loves...one more time before he dies. His granddaughter at first refuses to take him on this arduous hike but eventually agrees. After all, it is Grandpa's birthday and she's willing to take him on the outing provided he doesn't over-exert himself. What comes next is quite touching and the film clearly is one to see with some Kleenex handy as it explores issues about death and the quality of life. It's really hard not to like this one...or to see it without shedding a few tears. It's among the best shorts I've seen in a long time and can't wait to see more stuff from Ryan Todd.
