Mikhail Tank has made himself a very nice little movie and the set is very cleverly designed so that we only need to see the old man and hear what he has to say. What he says and who he is saying it to is lustrated by the prop in the movie. We know he is talking about the old days and we know that he talks to his grandson.
The movie is about four minutes long and that is just the time the movie need. Should it have been longer it would have required more than just the old man and the prop. As it is now it works fine. With that said we shouldn’t forget that this is a Dollar Baby and if it were done by Hollywood it probably wouldn’t have had been done at all. I think this is a movie best done by someone with the intent of doing a good movie because he likes the story he is telling and not by someone that makes it because he can afford it.
