Visually Minimal Story of a Unique Friendship
17 August 2020 | by iquineSee all my reviews

(Flash Review)

In the same vein as The Red Balloon, there is a lone boy wandering alone. This time not the streets of France but the white plains in the country. He comes across a white haired horse and the slowly form a friendship. The horse had escaped a ranch and while the ranchers are unable to tame it, the boy shows kindness and the horse acknowledges his warmth by letting only him ride him calmly. Will the boy keep him or will the ranchers wrangle the horse back? The pace is slow and the scenery minimal which gives it time to quietly makes its point.
