You just have to laugh at this mixed up family
14 July 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

When Jean seduces the young gardener for the sole purpose of annoying her husband little does she realise the explosive drama that is to follow.

The short scenario does not waste a word or a frame in this brief interlude in the day of a dysfunctional family. The lives of the father, mother and son are all linked in some way with the gardener. It's this fact that makes the script so intriguing.

For such a short film the production is every bit as professional as any major work and the casting is ideal.

A wonderful little film that can guarantee a few laughs from beginning to end.
