| Incredibly sophisticated, heartwarming and enjoyable 15-minute short with some top-notch acting talent and stunning visuals
This is a seriously sophisticated short film, executed with incredible detail in every department.

The music perfectly matches the tone of the piece with certain instruments managing to capture the very traits of the characters they underscore. The accordion, which by its very nature sound flat, perfectly matched the under-energised, downbeat feel of the old man. The soundscape of trains, bicycle bells and railings are seamlessly woven into the score in a way that enriches the visual experience and set the scene with skilled efficacy.

From the start the title cards suggest you are in for a visual treat with slick illustrations and quality art direction. The attention to detail in this respect is carried right through the piece with a colour palette that is measured and satisfying.

The performances from all three leads really take this film up a notch and the filmmakers have struck gold by casting some of the best British talent around in Charlotte Riley and Brian Cox. And the young boy, played by Joe Reynolds, is such a star.

This is a funny, tragic, tense, gripping, but above all incredibly heartwarming film... it's really got everything you could wish.

This is top notch film-making. I cant recommend it highly enough!
