Exceptional ... Very Well Done!
5 March 2011 | by madavis31See all my reviews

"Do you have children?" How do you answer that question when you've lost your child...no one is prepared for the grief-stricken answer to a question they think is casual conversation. "Man, pay attention to the road, I'm in a hurry!" How do you care that someone else's life is swiftly moving forward when your life has come to an abrupt halt after losing a child...

As a woman that has experienced such sorrow, this movie immediately catches your heart and acknowledges all the emotions grief leaves in its wake. The piece is also superbly balanced to relate to even those individuals that have yet to experience the emotion. Grief is universal and this movie beautifully illustrates such a sorrowful topic. It's amazing what meaning is delivered in such a short film. Masterfully written, directed, filmed and set to music. A must see!
