i liked your choice of colour! well paced movie and cool idea! -Daanish and David ("Home for the Holidays" pg. 3) 
pretty good pretty good. I like the idea a lot and this film makes me wonder what happens next. good job 'home for xmas' Daniel Stephenson 
An interesting mood piece all done in sepia tone. This one goes outside the box and tells the story in a unique and new way. Wonderful editing. Good performance by the leading lady. Well done! -Brian ("Christmas in Reno") 
You are not crazy at all :-) Well done! 
thanks Stanka- though I felt it when alone with that big turkey :) 
carla egerer (dreamdog girl in bagdad)cooky eating and raising the glass was the top , i had to laugh. 
that turkey looked yummy. good concept. 
Sahra, I liked the sepia tone at first, got a little dark and murky after that. I got really engaged emotionally just before the 2 min mark where I really felt for the character - I got really kinda sad for her. From that point on this is one of the best shorts I've seen regarding emotional involvement...good job! 
Sahra, i liked this film although it made me feel sad, but i guess that is what you wanted. I liked the cut to scene of people eating, well done. nora 
This is probably the most sane thing to do on x-mas, to spend it alone. It would be a good idea for me this year, but then they might think I'm mad... :-) Well done. Anastasia (at home on others' holidays) 
A lot of people are alone and you hit it on the head. Great job! 
Nice... it reminded me of Chantal Akerman. I just didn't like that much the sepia... otherwise, the short for me works perfectly.Daniel Barosa (The bedtime story of the girl...) 
lovely comparison. Yeah, I'm not sure if the sepia works either, just wanted a strangely not-current look.
