CGiii Comment

Ooooh...Moshe Rosenthal certainly knows how to construct, compose and frame a film.

Self-preservation is a mighty adversary...little gets in its way. And, Mr Rosenthal exemplifies and amplifies this formidable foe...with unbridled dexterity.

This film should serve as a masterclass for nascent short-filmakers...it has a contrasting and complimentary beginning and end...with a middle section that's quite breathtaking in its beauty, astonishing in its integrity and delivers a subtle [but emotionally violent] punch to the defeated...nothing gets in the way of self-preservation!

A stunning film.
