What is that? - A Sparrow

This is a 5 minute video clip in Greek. Turn on the speakers, just watch it with feelings. The transmission of energy in the third dimension of the 2 characters in the story. The English subtitle in monologue the visual communication (then and now) between father and son.

Watch this video in a quiet moment at any time to absorb the message of the story....please don't rush...its a very short video clip.

A simple yet touching sketch. It shows that in today's society, people have very low tolerance. In the past, people were very filial. I have seen many countries via history lessons, and their children helped their parents a lot, even´╗┐ if their parents gives nothing but trouble. Because they know their parents are the cause of his upbringing. This fact, have been ignored or taken advantage of today.

Hi James,

Tears came to my eyes just from watching this very touching video clip.

Thanks for showing us how impatient the younger generation had became with their elders. This is true in many societies, especially in very modern and developed nations. People were so immersed in their quests for material wealth that they became easily agitated.

A good message sent and a moral lesson learnt in less than 5 minutes. Good work!

Thank you for your spontaneous response to post your comments after watching this very touching video, Ipohgal.

I am pleased to share this blog with a 2007 Greek "Movie Teller Film" uploaded to YouTube by vimalthechocolateee with thanks.

Thanks to Director Constantin Pilavios and the wonderful people to film about people, not things.

The human language of the heart is universal. Its doesn't matter that this film was produced in Greek.

I had a phone call from an old friend after watching the video through the link to the blog, and asked me to add this comment to share.

My friend's teenage son is a temperamental guy who often lost control, screamed and shouted at his Dad.

The boy gets mad when the old man, because slightly deaf or his mind was working too slowly, asked a question too many times.

The boy gets annoyed, like that young man in the film.

My friend suggested:

Ask his son not to play "Angry Bird" on the iPhone game to win.

He should control the temper of the "Angry Man" to practice patience and compassion.

Don't let father and son quarrel or confront over the sparrow "What is that? though.
