| Beautiful and sad
It's a real shame that this wonderful picture is not available on video and didn't received not one major award. It's a beautiful - beautiful - beautiful picture. This very sad story is about a little boy, who doesn't want to resign to his father's death and believes that his father's twin brother is a dad himself. Full of nostalgic melodies of 50's and 60's this picture is amazing meditation on themes of childhood. Try to find it somewhere - this film is one of the best shorts I've ever seen (and I've seen 'em a lot).
