Interesting concept but ultimately hollow
When you forget about something it goes to another land. Most of the time it will stay there but sometimes "they" will give it back – but never when you expect it. This is the idea behind this film – a film that strives on the mystery and the questions we have about the concept; needs the mystery so much that the narration is delivered in the breathless whispers of child. In this regard the film works but at some point it has to deliver something or it will end unsatisfactorily. Sadly that happens here – the idea is never explored or taken anywhere and the narration is no help or interest at all. The direction is good and holds the interest but by the end of it you can't help wondering if you have messed up the video and perhaps failed to record the final minutes of this film. Interesting but ultimately hollow.
