Title says it all – it is a slick and sweet look at modern separation
12 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sweet by name and that is just what it is by nature/content as well. The story is a simple look at two people working through their day. Unbeknownst to the other, both of them engages in flights of fancy about the other, daydreaming in a meeting or somewhat. This continues as the day grinds on however the reality is much different. Fade to black and bring up a suitably sweet old time tune to take us through the credits.

The idea is good and effective as it presents us with a scenario that speaks volume about the emotional distance between people in the modern world. It doesn't do it in a judging way or in a pretentious way – rather it is, of course, sweet. The direction is slick and the footage is well worked and clean. Clever, cool and slick throughout in fact. Not incredibly memorable as a result but fun and well worth a look if you get the chance.
