Stuck in a limbo between life and death, Nathan Rijckx, a deceased World War I soldier, has to collect shadows to regain a second chance at life and love. With two shadows left to collect, he discovers something that shakes his world completely.
A dark WW1 fantasy about love and jealousy, this Oscar-nominated short from Tom Van Avermaet evokes a closeted world of deathly shadows through beautiful cinematography and its lush period setting. Brought to life (or is that death?) by the always-excellent Matthias Schoenaerts (Rust and Bone).
