This classic animated film describes how Nesbitt Spoon learns from his doctor that he only has five minutes to live. In the next few minutes he goes through caricatures of the recognised normal responses to hearing the news of one’s imminent demise. Like a good joke, this film says a lot and provides a useful stimulus for discussion.

This film was made in 1978, so the film and sound quality is not to modern standards. This should not diminish its value as a moving document.
