School, The (2003)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A school teacher (Russell Bennett) has various animals and plants die in his classroom, which makes the students wonder what death is and how life comes to be. Apparently there have been several versions of this film over the past few years including two from 2003. This is the only one I've watched and it was a pretty good little film that manages to be a little cute but at times it comes off rather creepy. The way the story is told is rather unique.

IFC shows this short quite a few times a month so you shouldn't have any problem viewing it.
