Watch this film. That’s all I’m going to say. I don’t want to name the group that created it because I want you to experience the movie with no preconceived ideas, no suppositions, and no attempts to glean a message before watching it. I want you to watch the film with fresh eyes, as was intended by its creator.
Why is this important? Because the film is important for its message — and the skillful way it presents it to viewers. We never see it coming.
And because we never see it coming, the message carries more weight, more resonance. The film takes us inside and makes us a part of. It does this as things unfold with the redheaded hero and his desk-writing crush. We are not all-seeing observers of a predictable love story – we are in the story. What we observe (and don’t observe, even when in plain view) is what brings home the message of this film.
The film comes together beautifully. Each moment advances the plot; every detail contributes to the deception and the limitations of our perception. This piece illustrates that sometimes life is too beautiful or chaotic or interesting to notice bad things. But in the end, if we don’t notice bad things, how beautiful or chaotic or interesting or lives are simply won’t matter.
We all need to experience this film.
Take two-and-a-half minutes to watch it. And then share it with your friends and family. The message is profound, and it’s delivery impeccable.
