Proving that the Cannes Film Festival likes short films paced like feature films, The Last One (Sonuncu) was in competition in 2014. The Last One features an old man living alone in a remote part of Azerbeijan, with his only connection to the outside world being a young man who delivers his groceries, and an old television. It seems the old man has become obsessed with his malfunctioning fridge. However, when the TV news announces the death of the last WWII veteran, disturbing memories return that suggest there is in fact still one last veteran alive. The film looks beautiful, but I am not sure I understood its intended message. Is that we have forgotten some of our veterans? That old people were once young and should be treated with respect no matter how crazy they are now? Feel free to let me know! If you like the Cannes short drama The Last One by Sergey Pikalov be sure to rate it and share it.
