You feel it as an animation film. for the presence of cardboard furniture . for knitwear. for the characters. maybe, for the story itself. a boy. an his neighbour, an old man. the solitude as common trait. a sinucide tempt. and a letter. as basis of special friendship. a film who could fascinate . first, for its splendid simplicity. and for a form of sketch of near reality. as a fairy tale. or parable. so, a special short film. about friendship. as beautiful hommage to it as seed of sense of life.
