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.

Although I'm a big fan of Hal Hartley's previous work (Trust, The Unbelievable Truth), I was a bit disappointed by Flirt. There are some clever elements to the film, including Hartley's always excellent dialog sequences. The repetition, providing different views on the same plot sequence, was well done. Overall, an above-average movie, particularly for Hartley followers.
