A simple little snippet of a film
4 June 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is an interesting short film. Unlike many stories, there is no back story or context. The film simply begins with a child (who looks about 11) talking into the camera as if she's making a video diary. Mom wanders into the scene and begins making comments that seem odd. As the scenes change, it becomes more and more apparent that the mother is losing her memory. With each cut, the change is more drastic. At first it looks like simple forgetfulness but by the end of the film, it's obvious that the lady has Alzheimer's and she's moving into the more dangerous stage as she no longer even recognizes her daughter.

The film is very moving exceptionally well made. Good acting, script and direction make this a sad yet informative film about a fictitious family in crisis. I'll look into showing this to my psychology classes next school year.
