ABOUT THE FILM

Freddie has the neighborhood's only daily lemonade stand. One day, his archenemy Freckle Face sets up her own stand next door. In hopes of cornering the neighborhood lemonade market, Freddie and Freckle Face try to one-up each other's stands until the unthinkable happens... Ruthless capitalism from the adults' world has reached children in a lemonade standoff where the youngsters work to earn pocket money. Children’s gleeful faces belie the satire underneath.

This is because I feel guilty for putting other people's films down and voting for my own.

オチが予想できてしまったが、まったりしたいときはまた見てみてもいいかなと思いました。

ほのぼのしたい時はこれを! 資本主義・競争社会の厳しさも、子供達のレモネード屋さんのかわいさにやられてしまいました。 サイレント映画風な本作。それをひとつの音楽に乗せた事で、7分間に爽やかさをもたらしています。まだショート・ムービーはそれほそ観てないのですが、内容うんぬよりもショート・ムービーだからできる事!そんな技アリな気がしました。
