Very good short film
13 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

This was shown as a series of one off one hour TV plays for C4. I thought this was the cream of the crop. Guy Burt (a very young, very talented author) managed in one hour to:

1) Develop four characters whom you care about 2) Lay down an interesting and compelling plot with a great central performance from Daniel Craig 3) Put an interesting ending on the piece

Not bad when most films cannot do this in an hour and a half. Try and catch this on a repeat OR read some of Guy Burt's books.
