Short Film Friday: Henry

I was hoping that the Oscar winning short Curfew would have been put online for free viewing by now, but sadly that is not the case. You can purchase the short on iTunes if you’d like, but that doesn’t help me showcase it on this blog.

In its absence, today we have one of the other four nominated short films, Henry by Yan England of Montreal, Quebec. Henry is a rather heart-breaking film in the vein of Amour, a story about coming to terms with aging and memory. It is heavy subject matter but it is beautifully filmed. At 20 minutes, it feels like it is the perfect length to make you think about its subject matter, without having it sap you emotionally.
