  1. maybe i'm just a wimp, but this is the most beautiful 14:33 seconds i have ever watched, what is the name of the feature film, has it been released? i can't stop tearing, absolutely wonderful … thank you for this upload

  2. If I could and if there was such a thing I would give DUST first prize in the YouTube BEST SHORT FILMS AWARDS I have not seen a DUST film I didn't like, they just get better and better.

  3. This is the most beautiful lovely sweetest DUST film I have seen. It really made me tear up. When you have lost a loved one, you will be heart broken always and wish this could happen. Thank you for the lovely film. It was truly heart breaking in a good way. Loved it.

  4. I love these short films by DUST. And, I thought that little girl looked familiar… heh heh… she's quite the lil' firecracker on TWD. Nice!! 3:)

  5. I love DUST SciFi shorts. I have a hard time sitting still and watching full length films.

    DUST gives a full movie experience in 5 to 15 minutes. Way to go!

  6. Is this little girl the one who appeared in America Got Talent or American Idol, who had the talent to speak several languages?

  7. Loads of people have already said it all, but wow that kid is a good actor, she has a brilliant future ahead of her. An excellent short film, the only bad acting is the computer voice, it REALLY sucked lol. thanks for the entertainment.

  8. i'm french and i didn't understand a word of what they said. i had to read the subtitles, it was kinda amusing

  9. The very end made me cry. THAT is not easy! I would give so much to spend 1 more moment with my mother just like that.

  10. Okay… I am finally commenting. This is probably the 5th.. 6th.. ? time I have watched this one … In my top 5 currently. LOVE this … and I know it will not be the last time I watch it. Would LOVE to see this as a feature length film .. I hope it makes it to that point, and is done as well as this short..

  11. This made me feel bad, I still see my mom daily and I forget to be playful with her and she is so unimaginably playful, her sisters are too ❤️

  12. Not the first time machine I meet in books or movies. Why are we son obsessed with it? It would be fun to accept what God says about time. Accept His rules. Live ever after and be able to see again things happening in time, since we can (as He does) look forward and look backward and live forever after in the Now. Read the Bible. Looks like a great future.

  13. I liked it! I'm caring for my mom who has dementia…
    …so, this was a bit difficult for me to watch, but I'm glad I did.

  14. The little munchkin is easily the best actor in this entire movie. The other people spoil it for her.

  15. Holy crap. this little girl is awesome, she can rival Villianelle from Killing Eve. She can be her younger self as well.

  16. I am genuinely disturbed by the fact that dust videos aren't getting much views relative to some other shit.
    Huge shout out from India

  17. For a little kid who's first language is obviously not French (or if she even speaks it) she did a great job with pronunciation!

  18. Have watched this video on repeat day after day.. cry everytime i watch it..helped me connect with my mom..i miss her very much..Thank you Dust.. the actors..the background score..the dialogues.. the story.. everything was perfect..

  19. Great storys,
    awesome actors
    I love it! 😀
    Please do Douglas Adams Hitchhickersguide to the galaxy storys!

  20. The Left informs us that rubbing a female co-workers shoulders to soothe her is"Sexual assault, creepy, makes me feel uncomfortable etc." Good cause for the sack, apparently, instead of simply one worker feeling empathy for another.

  21. Wow. How exceptional.

    The kids a good actor, the mains a decent actor, the subject matter is very good, the delivery is very good, the dialogue is very good the relationships and interactions are realistic, the characters and history are quite filled out for such a short film.
    I'm very pleased, and grateful for this work. Props to all involved.

  22. The way the robot voice sounded in the beginning had me cracking up. epically the part when it said "I seNsE tEnSioN"

  23. This one fell short for me. I think there was a tad too much expository dialogue, and the child actor was quite monotone in her delivery. I think it could have benefited from less dialogue, and more expression. Still, it's a good story. Maybe not top tier Dust, but certainly better than many mainstream attempts. And yes, I get that making films with kids is tough, and shorts don't have much time to worldbuild, but I think there could have been room for improvement.

  24. Hello and thank you for sharing such an amazing and awesome video. I really got sucked into this one. I was honestly sad that it ended. Loved it ❤️
