Gentle, a bit sentimental, but it works well
9 March 2019 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

An elderly woman has her memories triggered by a biscuit and cup of tea on a sunny later afternoon. This little animation is quite gentle in the way it deals with dementia, and it does tend a bit towards the sentimental, however it works surprisingly well. We see a few scenes from the woman's childhood and adulthood play out, and then it ends where we suspected it would. The animation is smooth and easy on the eye, and along with the music it does produce this gentle/sentimental tone. Watching it, I was looking for it to have a bit more of an edge, but by the end I knew I was wrong and trusting the film was the better way. The ending is pretty obvious in content, but the way it is delivered is really well done and gave me an emotional impact even as I was feeling a bit cynical and smug for knowing the end ahead of time. A gentle little film but worth seeing.
