It's all about relationships
2 July 2004 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

I caught this film on late-night cable as part of the gay focused programming that appears each June. There is a gay relationship at the center (Barney/Dimi), but that is only one of the orbits in this universe.

How one relates to family, lover, lover's family, self, and life and death are all important considerations of this short. Well done, very well acted.

The device of the two using a video camera spills over to the feel of the entire film. One experiences a real "slice of life" and is all the richer for it.

I would really like to see this make a DVD anthology of shorts. I would want it in my collection.
