    Beautifully crafted. Loved the moment her hand blended with the ghost.

  • Seb says:

    Such a heart-wrenching short made with so much care. It was beautiful for its simplicity and genuinely made me tear up.

  • Samantha says:

    Gosh that hit a few nerves. Hauntingly beautiful

  • Sonja says:

    Ghost could be loved ones, but it reminded me of the ghost I sometimes feel when I go somewhere new alone. Especially as a woman.

  • Janine says:

    Very touching film. There are so many people affected by Covid and this is a thoughtful way to bring awareness to those we have lost. I like the idea of using the words so familiar to us in remembering those we have lost in the wars – and using them in this strange time of Covid.

  • Antonia says:

    Beautiful and thoughtful.

  • Andy says:

    Brilliant! Haunting, but tender. A tiny bit of perfection!

  • Sue Clarence says:

    First class! Well done!!

  • Mathew Varghese says:

    Marvelous tiny movie. Even as Scepter of Pandemic scares us like anything, the movie ends with a hauntingly heart-touching scene.

  • Caz says:

    Gentle remembrance

  • Benet Vincent says:

    really really moving. Brilliant

  • Ketna Patel says:

    Restrained. Nuanced. Powerful. Had a visceral reaction to this film, especially when the ghost and the woman merged whilst unlocking the door to her home. It has so many layers of readability embedded in it. Bravo!

  • Gabby E says:

    Brilliant! Beautifully done
