*EDIT* Well, this being a Daily Feature sure is a pleasant surprise! Thank you to all who voted on this. I've also included a brand new loader.

This movie is about people's parents/grandparents who (undeservingly) get placed into nursing homes and become forgotten, only to die of loneliness.
Effluo is Latin. It means "to vanish", or "to be forgotten". Really, this is the result of my own grandmother's death a few months ago. We cared dearly for her, and took care of her 'till the very end, but it got me thinking... what about the other people? Who comes to see them before they die?

Man Wow

Cheers to you sir...very wonderful, very touching...and it is quite terrible. Yet the average creature within our populace sadly cares not for them...it takes a truly good human being to forget his problems when others are presented with some...and sadly enough, there arent too many trully good humans around. Wonderful job thou.

That was a sad flash. Even the music was sad too. Old people in nursery homes, it's a tragic thing, but what can you do about it? Most people are too selfish or busy to worry about the old people in nursing homes. That's really sweet of you and your family to take care of your grandmother before she died, and you made a good point, what about the other old people who's children or grandchildren don't even bother.

Quite exceptional!

Perhaps many people wouldnt read this review because apparently, i will just say good things. I have done worse of course, if you look through my history.

The fact that people dont understand that this is NOT a flash you made for your "grandmother" who had passed away. This is just something you made to make people realize that there are people out there, many many people who have been neglected by thier sons or daughters and put into nursing homes.

I m not totally against nursing homes, mind you, but to choose an appropriate one, one perfect for your mother or father, one that your parents would like to stay in, if they want to and not forced into it. After all, thier happiness is your happiness

One thing i would like to tell you to do, is remove the comment you made about your grandmother. Perhaps people will not misunderstand your intentions.

I appreciate your effort to bring the fact to light. We actually beleive that history repeats itself. You ignore your parents in thier old age, your children will ignore you in your old age.

By the way, the Grim Reaper giving the rose to the woman, was the best scene! I actually know that happens! Trust me!
