DVD Review: THE MOST: The Deluxe Edition DVD

MOST: The Deluxe Edition DVD
A 33-minute short film directed by Bobby Garabedian

“MOST, the Czech word for “The Bridge,” is a fitting title for this 21st-century parable about a loving father, his young son, and the fateful day when they attempt to head off an impending rail disaster. Hundreds of passengers aboard an oncoming steam train are completely unaware of the danger that looms as they head toward an open drawbridge. As a desperate young woman witnesses an act of mercy beyond imagination, her life is changed forever — as are the lives of all who see this film. Both heart wrenching and glorious, MOST vividly portrays the greatest offering of love, sacrifice, hope, and forgiveness known to man.”

A heart-wrenching story, MOST is a modern-day parable of a father having to decide between his son's life or a train loaded with people. He has to make the terrible decision to give up his son for the lives of people completely oblivious to his incredible act of mercy. This story mirrors the gospel in that God gave up His beloved Son, not for a perfect world, but for a world of sinners unaware of the danger ahead.

This is a story that will deeply affect you and move you to tears. I recommend watching the bonus scenes along with the movie, because they explain some of the details I had a hard time following the first time through. Then I was able to appreciate the storyline much more.

This amazing short film was made over the course of three years, as chronicled in the 32-minute feature "Making of MOST". I found this feature to be absolutely fascinating as the producers tell about their desire to make this movie and the huge obstacles they had to overcome.  The story is incredible, and I recommend getting this Deluxe Edition DVD even if you've already seen the movie-- because the "Making of MOST" feature is absolutely amazing and extremely interesting.

I highly recommend MOST - The Deluxe Edition DVD. Filmed with Czech-speaking actors (with subtitles in many languages) and a Czech orchestra, this film was very well made and the storyline beyond compelling. Heart-wrenching and poignant, it is a film guaranteed to impact anyone who watches it. For more information, visit their website: MostTheMovie.com.

  3. At first I thought my heart would break if I watched this but then I realized even more how much our father must have felt. I hope Netflix carries it b/c my adult son gets movies from there
