Well done, Sören. A beautiful story, well shot and acted. I really enjoyed it and while some people have said that it is predictable, I'd rather say that it is comfortable -- like your favorite shirt or coat. Life is beautiful and your film has captured some of that beauty. Thank you for a nice morning wake-up thought. This was a great way to start a day.

Best regards,

Thanks a lot!
The music was actually composed for this film (by Niels Ingo Press). While editing I used a lot of temp music and showed that to the composer who got inspired by that.

It's interesting that the ending was obvious to you. I showed the film on a few festivals and talked to people about the ending a lot. Not many thought it was predictable. But it were mostly ppl having nothing to do with films/storytelling professionally.
But thanks, constructive critique is always welcome!

Es gefällt mir sehr gut!

very good independent film over-all, Soren!

Positive: the color was very consistent and the camera work mostly solid. the music was also good... i thought i recognized some of it. where was the music from?

Constructive: it was generally predictable. from the idea that Teddy was his grandfather, to the reveal of the old man in the chair, i could see them all from a mile away. may want to tighten up your storytelling a bit.

Again, over-all good work! i look forward to more from you!
