Stunning imagery, compelling, heart wrenching story
5 May 2019 | by habrenSee all my reviews

Two children try to survive in the ruins of a city overrun by war. There's hardly any lines spoken by the characters and the soldiers only mumble incoherently, which makes sense as viewed through the eyes of children.

The decisions they make are also completely believable as logical in a child's mind.

The stunning imagery and sound effects add to the story. They create a sense of loneliness and despair. It made me cry.

Only downside for me that it was way too short.
