What do I like about it, and what might other people like about it?

I like that they took a risk trying something different even if I did not like the approach that they took, and I think that other people might like that as well.

Final Thoughts

Back when I saw this short film it surprised me because it was not what I had expected, I did not expect the comedy, and it was not as good as I had expected.

I would rather that it was serious without the comedy, and I am surprised that it is a Vimeo Staff Pick because I do not think that it is good enough for that.

The end,
