A young boy lives with his parents in the ruins of an old circus, long faded beyond its glory days - just like his dwarf father, who is a figure of mockery rather than wonder to children, a contrast to his days in the circus which exist beyond the memory of his son. Written by bob the moo

An Outstanding Short With The Perfect Ending
12 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

This little gem will only take 15 minutes of your time, but its magical impact will stay with you. A simple story told with no dialog at all, whose power arises from the imagination.

So much is transmitted by implication here. We can well speculate on the past of our protagonist, the thoughts of these silent characters, that a special kind of crisis demanding intervention of the most amazing sort is called for. A son needs to believe in his father, and the father accepts that challenging assignment exquisitely.

No overbearing special effects here. The only gun is barely smoking, every boom faint in the distance. Just a very great achievement quietly and modestly performed.

Don't miss a chance to see this charming and uniquely inspiring tale!
