Stuck in a dark limbo between life and death, a deceased soldier Nathan Rijckx collects shadows of dying men and women to buy back his own second chance at life. Obsessed by a girl he met the moment before he died, the thought of seeing his beloved again drives the soldier to regain access to the world of the living. But when he discovers that she’s already in love with someone else, jealousy clouds his mind and pushes him toward a bitter decision, a decision not without its consequences…
Too short but fantastic
This film leaves you wanting much more, superb plot and high quality props and sets, just so short. It would have been great to be feature length but I'd rather short and sweet rather than long and boring. It's a very unusual story, highly imaginative. I hope to see more from this director.
Nothing short of outstanding
This a superb little gem no one should miss out on. Incredibly touching and delicately sweet, it brings to life humanity in a fantastiscal way, managing to strike the right note with all of us. However, bear in mind that, while iTunes claims it's spoken in French, it is actually almost intirely spoken in Flemish (The Belgian variant of Dutch) with only a few lines in French. Overall, a magnificent piece of work.
Beautiful cinematography with a great plot concept. Does indeed leave you wanting a feature!
