| When Words Are Not Necessary
In the Second World War, probably in a concentration camp somewhere, Gary Sinise is a soldier who conducts Jews everyday to some place where only clothes come back, under the eyes of an young prisoner boy (Elijah Wood). This witness disturbs the soldier, driving the story to a tragic and sad end and a new beginning. Excellent short story, with a great duel between the soldier and the boy. The running time of 19 minutes is perfect for the plot. My vote is eight.
