Sweet little Short film
10 January 2017 | by spitefire_fanSee all my reviews

I don't normally review titles but I just watched this short film and found it quite moving, then upon looking it up I noticed that the only review of it wasn't that favorable so I decided to throw in my two cents. This short film is very charming and sweet and has the feel on one of those pixar films where something very simple occurs but it takes on this bittersweet profound meaning and gives you a feeling of warmth and happiness. Now imagine that but live action and with a couple grumpy old men and a decent amount of adult language. All and all it made for a very entertaining short film that I would recommend to anyone because not only was it very moving and funny, but it is only 16 minutes and very easy for anyone to view.
