What an absolutely beautiful story. Well told. Well done.
I’m a sucker for wagons – Love it
Amazing film! Congratulations.
I like the music, where is it from?
What a wonderful film, great story, beautiful images. Very well done – we could all hope for such a positive human-machine interface, so to speak!
Brilliant film and story!
How do you turn on the subtitles?
Small square CC button in the lower right hand corner of the player.
@Petrolicious, how can we find the name of the filmmaker and contact info to congratulate him/her? Beautiful piece to say the least!!
Bonjour Jim, I’m the filmmaker. I’m happy to see your message. Thanks.
Bien fait! Beautiful film.
I had a real difficult time trying to read the subtitles while at the same time checking out the beautiful young french girl.
B e a u t i f u l . (Even though I couldn’t understand a word of it.) Thank you!
I love this. A great story, and a great vehicle. Object-romance always gets me.
That just erased about 45 years…took me back to being a teenager in Europe. It wasn’t a Lambretta …although my brother had one of those, a Vespa,and a DKW among others. The Uncle’s smile makes this sentimental clip great and any girl that helps to wash the scooter is a keeper! It is the simple pleasures we remember.
Absolutely wonderful ! Civility, decency, and just a whole lot of goodness.
Thats proof a vechicle of any sort is not just a pile of metal and rubber. Sometimes its the stich that holds the fabric of family together….. and that a kool ride is will always get you the pretty girl.
I agree Kelly, what a wonderful evocative film and something the whole family is evidently proud of. In these dark and troubled days in a which we live, an uplifting film which restores your faith in human nature….a little!
