Joseph Friend
21 November 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

He is Tommy. His eyes, gestures and look, his body in the magic dust of moth are real special, pillars of a short film proposing the fantasy as only escape from a heavy reality. A film about faith and about word of a mother. About a summer evening and a man looking for the right language with his stepson. And the embroidery of a story about deep solitude. The good point - it is one of many situation in a case of a child. The great point - the fascinating poetry of the second part images. A film who gives many answers and a lot of questions. First, for the precise verdict about family. Second - for the refuge of a seven years old boy. And for the magic becoming so real.
