Heartbreaking
28 February 2011 | by balladhunterSee all my reviews

Who'd have thought that a 15-minute film could be so moving? This movie hooks you in so quickly, my wife and I could hardly believe it was over, with us both sitting there thunderstruck. I'm only sorry it's still running its festival course, because we've talked about it to friends so much that they keep asking where they can see it!

From the unsettling opening credits, where the cabbie's face keeps coming in and out of focus in this surreal way, to the final desperate moment against that wall, the emotional journey of this lone, lonely man is so ... familiar, so identifiable, so universal that it speaks volumes about grief and finding one's way through. I know that when my sister passed, my life must've been a similar, seemingly irrecoverable mess.

Can't wait to see what this creative team does next!
