What would you do if you only had 8 minutes?
7 October 2018 | by tsevelevslSee all my reviews

One of the best short films I've ever seen. It's perfect the way it is - telling the story about people, about life and death, about the important things in life. About art. About being an artist. It's a short story, but it's very, very deep.
