Not a traditional romance
Cederic from United Kingdom
4 May 2003
As with all the best short films, Soul Patrol has an interesting premise
that is displayed with style and simplicity.
Clint Dyer looks comfortable in the lead role and plays off well against
Sadie Frost, who is never seen out of a posh frock. The story revolves
around their relationship, and although there is clearly a secret here,
director makes no attempt to hide it.
The film works because you find yourself enjoying the interplay between
lead characters, while trying to figure out where things will go between
Taking a fine line between drama and comedy with a bias to the latter, the
film is almost light hearted, but manages to convey a very dark feeling in
places. The only negative points are a couple of rather corny lines from
Earl (Clint Dyer), which the writer should (but probably isn't) be ashamed
Perhaps not a traditional romance (but what short film ever is) this film
very likeable, and well worth seeing if you get the chance.
