Storyline

A reflection on a young boy's steps toward maturity. A boy of seven or eight lives with his mother in a small house in rural Mexico. He wants to capture a jet airplane that flies over the fields every day. He tries to grab its reflection when it passes across the animals' watering hole. First, he tries leaping astride the reflection, another day he flings one of his mother's blankets over it as it passes. Then, he builds a box with a side flap he can close as the plane's reflection travels the surface of the pond. With success comes responsibility: what should he do with the plane once he's captured it in his box? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

One of the best in the world....
28 September 2005 | by gloriousfilms-1See all my reviews

Beautiful and poetic... Just the way cinema should be... It takes you to a place where imagination is fully explored in the creative process. We are all kids trying to grab reflections of our own existence. Nature vs. our modern world. Contrasts and conflict. It's universal and it wonders into solitude and our possibilities. An open opera where the author is not trying to impose the meaning or the sense but takes the audience into account. It's timeless. Certainly one of the best films I've ever seen. When an artist knows the craft and fully achieves something like this beautiful short film it gives us hope about the future. Amazing cinematography, acting, sound and most important... story.
