CGiii Comment

Packing this amount of content into 12 minutes is an achievement in itself. But...to do it with such skill is more than enviable.

The conflict, the coming-out, the humour and the tragedy...topped off by a luminous sentiment. Wow!

With impeccable writing...this is impeccable filmmaking.
