More Tribeca shorts: SYSTEM ERROR, TOTO, VERA
A robotic service unit in a convience store tries to change so he can have a friend.
One of Tribeca's best is also one of the truly great finds of 2020. A magnificent story of life that must be seen- and which apparently is going to be turned into a series.
Sign me up.
Bitter sweet scifi tale has a granmother getting a robotic helper who she teached to cook.
Lovely charming film takes a dark turn when the ganddaughter updates Toto thus wiping his memory and removing her friend. I don't hink it was intended to be this dark (the end music is jaunty) but the happy tale turns bitter sweert and becomes a kind of riff on Alzhiemers or dementia.
A cleaning woman imagines a the ower of the office she is ceaning based on the objects in the room. And begins a conversation with him through notes.
Small gem of a film is a sweet and lovely little tale that will leave you smiling. An unexpected pleasure.
