Aaralyn Anderson
1 November 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Her lovely performance is the axis of this short film about death, life and frustrations of an adult. A father, his daugther, a hamster and a speech who reflects the solitude , the vulnerability and the love. The only sin - desire to be more than a simple comedy, using a demonstration who escapes from the lovely frame to a not assumed drama. So, the lovely performance of Aaralyn Anderson as the basic motif for see this short film.
