The Last Bookshop – a short film

cr The Last Book ShopGot a few moments to spare this weekend? This gorgeous short film comprises a chilling tale, beautifully told in just 20 minutes.

cr The Last Book Shop_1The scene where the old shopkeeper (who has been waiting for a customer for 25 years, two months and six days) shows the small boy how to open a book is surprisingly moving, and the ending is just sublime.

I love the line where the shopkeeper explains books as giving you “memories of things you will never experience.”
