    Beautifully done. Lovingly shot and performed. Nice choice of locations and details. I loved the old Verve label! And the lesson that the film teaches, that the new may be popular, but the old is still valued (and needed).

    Enjoyed it very much! Was captured right from the start. Not knowing what was going to happen, I found myself saying “please rain” It was nice to see that the younger street salesman cared for him, and tried to be helpful. It also showed the sadness, and loneliness that “our” elderly go through. Great Short Film! Glad it rained ;-)

    Beautifully done. I enjoyed your short film very much. Is very refreshing to see a young person caring for an elderly man. It portrays so much in a short time. Good luck!

    i Loved the humanity of this film great directing and cinematography and grand acting.
    i AM DISAPOINTED IN CHANNEL 13 SHOWING IT AT 12:30 PM. THIS MAKES IT 4/29, NOT 4/28 AS ADVERTIZED. A REAL LET DOWN FOR ALL WHO VOTED AND WANTED TO HAVE A FILM VIEWING PARTY.
    SHORT SUBJECTS TRADITIONALY GET SHOWN AHEAD OF THE FEATURE NOT AT THE END.
