"Ten Glorious Seconds"

"Ten Glorious Seconds" is a short film about living with Alzheimers and those deminishing moments of clarity which occur.

Received this in my inbox and after viewing I really wanted to share here with others who could connect and understand.  Many of us who deal with a loved one (or loved ones) with dementia have experienced those special moments of clarity and we so treasure them.

Ten Glorious Seconds features Emmy-Award winning actor David Suchet (Hercule Poirot in the BAFTA-winning TV series Agatha Christie's Poirot), together with veteran British actors Paul Collard and Gabrielle Hamilton.

The film is a short drama about Albert. Living in his care room, he's in the late stages of Alzheimer's, and his use of language has been lost. His wife Josie is aware that time is running out for them and is desperate to connect again.

Albert doesn’t know her anymore. Yet he can still receive and return emotional signals. And although what Josie does and says seems not to have an obvious impact; her presence and support triggers a blazing search in Albert's memory for a connection.

Ten Glorious Seconds is directed by Simon Pitts and written by Carol Younghusband
