NEST, THE cover image
Quite charming. I love how respectful the young girl is of the bird and the eggs.

The storyline follows a 7-year-old girl who aids a mother bird by rescuing her fallen nest and adds a discovered egg from the park to it, which mama bird readily adopts.

This silent short film expresses the respect that a young girl has for nature, from its opening scene. She offers her aid quite carefully, referring to books for guidance so she does the right thing. The camerawork is well executed, as is the audio. At times, the lighting is poor but it doesn't detract from the overall impact of the film. When the girl finds a fallen nest, she replaces it to its spot high above her front door. When she finds an egg at the park, she carefully puts it into her pocket and takes it home to place in the nest with the mother bird's other eggs. Her sweet attitude prevails throughout the film which is enhanced by background music that builds in its crescendo as the plot develops. At times it may seem a bit overly dramatic, but then again, life emerging before our very eyes is indeed dramatic.

The message of this film is about respecting nature and aiding it only on an "as needed" basis.

I give The Nest 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 3 to 6. By Julie S., KIDS FIRST!

Seven-year-old Esther got the company of a mother bird during her summer vacation. The film portrait the an unknown relationship between the bird and Esther which leads to some memorable events and finally end up with a very positive message.
