worth it
this movie is cool. its short but really tells a lot of story and is stuffed with details in a limited amount of time (20 minutes i think.) i really liked the young boy and his love for his father...very touching, and when the unthinkable happens, his reaction is utterly gut-wrenching. it's a very well written movie..a lot moments spent in silence that are extremely effective in setting up the relationship of each sibling. not sure what the budget was because its obviously filmed on 16mm; however, all the other aspects - the performances, direction, music, etc. are great so it doesn't really matter. not much more i can say about this that hasn't been said 'cept you should check it out for a nice little piece of good short film-making.
