Mother's Day Gift is a short documentary that tells a touching story about the special relationship between Jaana and her daughter Liisa who died in a traffic accident at the age of 16. The film deals with the mother's grief as well as events before and after the death. At an early age the sensitive and peculiar girl said she received signs, some sorts of premonitions about things to come. Jaana took these signs lightly and was amused by them until Liisa had a premonition that she would die young. This led Jaana to wonder: how could she ever survive if that became reality?

Absolute masterclass in sound editing, not to mention the campy script, brilliant acting, soundtrack, and set design!

This movie blew me away; however not the first time I saw it, I had to watch it twice to truly appreciate the message and the power of this film. Maybe I wasn't fully paying attention or maybe I was too young at the time but I am so glad that I watched it again.

This movie is everything I had hoped it to be and far, far more. Literally every choice they made while making it was a right one.
