On an elevator, Stuart sees an attractive blond woman in black boots, but loses his nerve before speaking to her. His life is dull: typical chores include watering his cactus and buying a toilet brush. That Friday night, he sees the woman from the elevator get into a cab. He gives chase and watches her enter a house where a party is going on. Deciding to live dangerously, he crashes the party. The somewhat-stuffy host and hostess have a "shoes off!" policy to protect their new carpet. Before Stuart (plagued by a hole in a sock) can reach the blond, disaster strikes. Will Stuart be booted from the party and shooed away before he can connect with the mystery woman? Written by
This is a charming short film. At first, I was a bit put off because it seemed as if the film was made by someone with a shoe fetish, though I guess this is all pretty harmless in this case. The camera focused a lot on feet as did the plot--plus the main character in the film first noticed a gorgeous woman NOT for her face or body but because of her black boots. Odd yes, but not so creepy that it impacted my enjoyment of the film (unlike another short, BABETTE'S FEET).
The film begins with our exceptionally shy hero on an elevator. A beautiful woman steps on with her flashy boots and practically every guy is attracted to her (and the camera keeps focusing on the boots). The guy wants to ask her out, but is just too shy. So later, he follows her to a housewarming party and builds up the courage to crash the party to meet her. Things DON'T go as he'd want at first, but things somehow manage to work--and it's all very cute and a nice little romance.
Well made, interesting and well made--this one is a winner. But why all the shoe shots?!
