CGiii Comment

Rarely does a short film blow you away...this will blow you away.

The film-making talent on show is...immense. Every shot is a work of art, the score is symphonic...the colouring, inspired. This is cinema in the short film format

A trans*film made before the trans*film explosion...because this film set the bar so high...sadly, few trans*films that followed can hold a light to this mini-masterwork. It really is that good.

Short filmmakers take note...this is the amount of work and talent needed to succeed in this fickle indusrty. It's sad and incomprehensible as to why these directors have not done more!

Bold, beautiful with just a hint of the fairytale...

The(ir) Blurb...

A rainy night, Ursula crosses a lush forest. Stops before the gate of an old cemetery and break the chains that keep her from entering. In his right hand holds a shovel, on the left, a heavy suitcase.
