I like how this makes people think...
27 May 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

DESIRE is an odd little short film and I liked it because of its subtlety--it makes you think.

A grouchy husband and his wife are going on a walk to view some obelisk in the city. A couple sailors come up to them and ask directions to the obelisk but the grouchy guy tells them he doesn't know either. They decide to all walk there together, though after a bit the wife lingers behind with one of the sailors. They end up disappearing and have sex after which time they return to find the husband and the other sailor waiting. Both groups tell the other they DID go see this obelisk but couldn't understand how they missed each other. In the end, you are left wondering who had the better time that day--the husband or the wife.

As I said above, this is a pretty subtle film and it has an interesting twist at the end. I recommend the film because it is very clever and tells a story in a very unconventional manner.
