This started off as a 30 minute short which Hal Hartley shot in New York as he was preparing to make Amateur (1994). He was subsequently handed the money to expand his half hour featurette. See more »
I want you to tell me if there's a future for me and you.
A future, huh?
How can I answer that?
Yes or no.
I can't see the future.
You don't *need* to see it if you know it's there.

A Great Art-House Film with a Wonderful Sense of Life
I really liked this movie, and I enjoy it more and more each time I see it (and it says something that I went out and bought it after one viewing, just so I could watch it again and again). On one level, it's just a lot of fun, very insightful, wittily written and playfully acted by a great cast. On another level, it's also quite poetic, obviously made with a lot of love, and structurally speaking, an incredibly well-executed work of art- perhaps too artsy for some people. I would have to say that Hal Hartley is my favourite film maker, indie or not, and of his movies, this is probably one of the best and most accessible. He'll probably never be mainstream, but that's not a bad thing- it's partially the individuality of his work that makes it so unique, so honest, and so damn good. FLIRT is a fine, fine example.
