Storyline

Marty is very short; but he's neither nasty nor brutish, he's a genuinely nice guy, rich in friends but solitary in the game of love. Women, as he says, are over his head; he's out of their picture. Then, he meets Alison, and on a hike up a fairly steep mountain, he shows his down-to-earth courtesy, and she notices his eyes. Life, like Marty, is short. Has he met his match?

Sweet
1 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a very simple short film done entirely in black and white. SHORT is a film featuring a midget who narrates this film about his life. He really wants to find a girlfriend, though from his tone it's obvious that he's about given up hope in finding one--after all, he reasons, what girl would want someone as little as him. However, he has an odd little theory that if he can find a girl and discover her flaw, then he MIGHT stand a chance. Later, his friend introduces him to a lovely young lady and it's pretty obvious the narrator is smitten.

The film has great heart and is very sweet. The acting, direction, music and style all seem to indicate that those associated with the film might have tremendous futures and I hope to see more from them.
