A well written script is usually the best foundation for a good production. "The Jump" is a jewel. This short epitomizes the art of short film making. A short, like its predecessor, the short story, attains at reaching a level of poetic discourse woven into a mundane story. Why are we so awestruck? Because this movie touches man's visceral need to transcend gravity in its most concrete and abstract nuances while leaving us at the end with a sense of absolute freedom and joy. Bravo!!!
