TWO SOLDIERS - AARON SCHNEIDER (2003)
Two Soldiers won the Oscar for Best Short Film in 2004. The Academy had been rewarding longer short films for most of the last decade, and Two Soldiers was an extreme example. However, it is to its credit that it does not feel particularly long. Set during WWII, it is a touching account of a young boy who wants to join his brother in the "war at Pearl Harbour". It's very American in its tone but a great performance by Ron Perlman (aka Hellboy) makes you more likely to cry than anything else by the end. If you like Two Soldiers, rate it and share it.
