Low budget, short film about bereavement, masterfully done.
10 August 2002 | by Havan_IronOakSee all my reviews

Ari, Nina and Ethan have lost their mother when a helicopter carrying her and her famous music promoter boyfriend crashes. While his two siblings live in California where their mother lived, Ari lives in New York. The movie opens with a series of phone messages between Ari and his mother showing that although they try they just never seem to connect.

The film is a mix of live action and animation with the cheesy animation in some way pointing out the unreality of it all. I thought that this was an effective device for showing how Ari and his siblings must be viewing the hoopla surrounding a memorial concert for their mother's dead boyfriend. Yes, the public is in mourning but NOT for the woman that these three are.

As someone who has lost both parents, I found the film touching and evocative and could easily see where the film-maker was going with this. I somewhat suspect that those who have criticized this film have never felt the way that Ari and his siblings are feeling.
