01) Grandma [2011]


“A gently comic short film exploring children’s misunderstandings on the subject of death with a delightfully uplifting ending. Grandma doesn’t look ill – but she is, so Dad has to tell his children to be ready to say goodbye to her. Grandma makes it easier for the children by saying she will still be with them and will watch over them; even when she is gone. Lulu, the youngest child, is distraught when she hears her parents and the funeral directors talking about burying Grandma. All the children agree that they must help Grandma get to heaven and their first Internet search result for ‘How to get to Heaven’ is Heaven Hot Air Balloons…”

01) Two 13 year old boys (2004)


“Thirteen-year-old David, living without a mother with a drinking father, meets the son of new neighbors…”

The thigh touching at about 5:45 in, leading into a black screen and heavy breathing…

…It’s curious how you only tend to see this sort of commonality in life, represented in independent films…

…I guess…reality of life is too much, for the big studios…who are solely concerned about making their money.

…The red headed mop top, is freaking cute!

01) Hand-made(2011)Ukraine


“Alyosha finds old roller skates, “modernizes” them, showing a little creativity and creativity, and goes to the city park, where the children skate. All this time he feels how random passers-by chuckle at him, joke, considering his manifestation of creativity as a fad. The film tells how difficult it is to establish contact with the world and other people, while maintaining its individuality.”

The Quest – a.k.a. Frog Dreaming…

01) The Quest [1986] Frog Dreaming – Henry Thomas – Tony Barry – Lake Monster


“Cody, a rebellious but clever boy, finds himself on an exciting journey to discover the whereabouts of local legend, the Donkegin.”

Over the years, and frankly, at the original time…I got this movie confused with Quest…a movie in which Noah Hathaway had a small part.

It seems like I remember seeing him on the VHS box cover for the movie…but I never actually got to see the movie…

I loved both of these boy actors…and wanted to watch this movie…

In all fairness…it was a somewhat cartoonish drawing of the boy on the cover…so…It’s probably forgivable, that I wasn’t entirely sure which boy it was supposed to be…He was wearing a hat, too.
