"A real gem of a flick!"
5 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

I saw Benjamin's Struggle on the big screen and found it to be a powerful and very moving film.

There were many powerful moments and if I were to describe it in a few words, I would call this a "Classy Short Film".

Many people have clearly put a lot of thought and effort into making this an informative and moving short film.

I particularly liked the acting and great lighting.

"A real gem of a flick!" well done. It is easy to see how you won awards..

Best Wishes CF
