Electric Shadows (2005)

A low-paid worker with a deep love of movies finds himself in a peculiar situation after an accident on his bike.
What follows is a journey for both him and us, while simultaneously being a love letter to its own method of presentation - to film in all its glory. The tale of discovery tells of how important a part of someone's life the magic of cinema can be, and how the love it inspires can be put to use.
As events moved gently into the third act it seemed like Electric Shadows was building towards an enchanting ending, the kind that resonates regardless of whether it's predominantly happy or sad. Happily, it delivered.
