Maria Trovatten, Karin Jacobsen
Smith has spent centuries of his life searching for his guiding star, but all his efforts have been in vain. Just as he is about to give up, his star finally emerges. It turns out that the star he has been waiting for along is really just a reflection of light in his window. Told through a series of concise episodes, Tell Me Not to Worry is a story about seeking, finding and the revelations made in the process. The film is not only entertaining but proves as a meditation on the true meaning of life. (Lim Sung-min)
