A early effort, but pleasing and sure-footed; about boxing.
11 January 2001 | by (San Francisco Bay, North) – See all my reviews

This was more or less a student-effort by De Felitta while at the Film Institute, but transcends that. The story is reminiscent of some of the early O. Henry stories about boxing, or even of some of Jack London's work like "A Piece of Steak." There are some nice humorous touches here, and the characters come alive quickly, but remain more memorable than in most short films. It taps into univeral problems of human nature, especially those relating to althletic competition -- with a light, but sure touch. There's little to be boo-ed about this work. Bravo!
