A truly lovely film
10 August 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This film is included on a DVD entitled "Shorts: Volume Three". Oddly, I have seen volume One already and Three is definitely much better--though both are worth finding for lovers of short films like myself.

This film shows a boy named Daniel going about his daily life. He seemed like he's depressed, as he doesn't join the other kids in sports and his emotions are very flat. The next day, he pretends to be sick so he can stay home from school. However, after his mother leaves, he sneaks off on a cross-country adventure.

This film really sneaks up on you, as it starts off very slowly and quietly--plus, you really aren't sure what's happening because the context for what you are seeing isn't revealed. However, the film makers did a great job in establishing a mood--with an excellent but stark piano score and excellent film work. Instead of worrying about what's happening, just sit back and watch--the film ultimately packs a very emotional wallop.

Exceptional in every way.
