jusco’s Rating: ★★★

Most (aka The Bridge) is a short film that runs for only 29 minutes, but will rank among the most powerful and moving films you’ll ever watch. Set in Czech Republic, it concerns a single father working at a railroad bridge, and his eight-year-old son whom he dearly loves. It’s hard to talk about the plot without giving away anything, but let’s just say a tragedy occurs. Through the highly emotional and heartbreaking performances, you are invited to dwell deeply on the issue of ethical dilemmas and ultimately, the goodness of mankind. Obvious Christian references are made, and causes you to once again deeply meditate on God’s love (read Christianity Today’s review of the film here – but make sure it’s after you watch it to prevent spoilers). Is there hope left in our bleak world? After watching this, I would say yes, there is.
