This one is magical
A grandfather teaches his grandson an important lesson about time.
This is a very gorgeous looking film. And sounding too. The music is very nice. The story is a Stephen King one. When I saw it the first time, I had trouble concentrating on the polish subtitles. They are rather small and have to compete with a lot of color. Plus, the dialogue is quite slow and nothing all that exciting happens. However, it's just a nice film. Reminds me of Black Beauty from when I was a kid. It's warm hearted. There's a lesson about childhood and mortality. And apparently, this is a hot property. There's an American short film released this year based on the same exact story. Without having seen it, I bet this one's better. American productions always find a way to be dumb. This one is magical. And finally, we are an international film festival, and we should be encouraging quality filmmaking like this. I'm not sure I've seen a new one from Poland recently. Not my absolute highest recommendation, but it's very good and definitely earned my vote.
