Moving short film
I thought it was very powerful.
es gefallt mir. Ich habe alles verstehen deshalb kein Deutsch in viele Jahre gesprochen.
I througly enjoyed this short. I highly recommend adding it to your queue.
I thought Toyland is an amazingly efficient film, effectively cramming all of the necessary information for the narrative of the story into a very short film. Highly enjoyable to watch. Sad as Hell.
This narrative short film packs in as much story line, character development and power as many 2 hour films. Very moving. The kind of film that haunts one.
