| An Amazing Director and Poignant film.
I just watched these 3 short films last night.

I must say, It's quite eerie to have images of the film stick to your mind even though it was shot in black and white. I felt something at the end of the trilogy or the last scene which I've never seen before in any cinematic movie. The directors commentary stated that it was short in one take. It was beautiful yet intimidating and well eye opening.

You should definitely find this in your library there.

Since the dialog is limited, the most powerful line was in the last short film when the child was asked by the nun, "do you love god?" to which the boy replied "yes I do". It was a case of brain washed Catholicism where the child or children could not even say, "I don't know" in fear that turning against an unknowing God might bring down some unearthly punishment.

I loved it and has given me respect for more independent film makers like Davies.
