Grandpa

Ah Gong

ALT | International Shorts

While visiting his failing grandfather at the hospital, 11-year-old Chris sees his mother and uncles making a painful and difficult choice. This is a beautifully nuanced portrait of a family having to make a life-or-death decision about a loved one, viewed from the perspective of an adolescent boy. The film works on multiple layers as it handles this delicate situation quite beautifully with nice pacing and subtle emotional moments. Fine direction and really good ensemble performances highlight this quiet, powerful piece.
