One of those RARE short films that grabs you by the lapels and doesn't let go., 6 February 2001
Author: krypton8 from LA, California

What a great surprise this short film was. Unlike most shorts, it provides everything you wish most feature length films would. Great characters, mysterious story, beautiful cinematography. The actors were entirely believable and the story keeps you guessing right up until the surprising ending. A talented film director to watch. Check out the brilliant cameo by Monty Python veteran, Eric Idle!
