The voice of Ian McKellan,the performance of David Bradley and Edmund. A simple story, amusing, touching, in same measure, about the gray life of a farmer, his noble past and a newspaper article giving hope , a huge unlock and a gesture changing everything and giving joy and sense to a not spectacular existence. The film could be perceived from different angles but it is a beautiful, charming storytelling about sense. Reminding a Hasidic story. And giving not only a good short film or subtle pledge for a pink cause but a special state to the viewer. A virtue for I am real and profound happy to see it. Again.
