Love Sucks!
31 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In moments of desperation were willing to do whatever it takes to win. I loved how the Maple Leaves futility was used as a metaphorical basis for Bobby and Tessa. The acting was accurate by far superior from the hogwash intake given by the film industry.

Great editing! At the end of the short I felt it was a bit incomplete but so is life and this is were life and art waltz into cinematic masterpiece.

Excuse me while I rinse off the cheese whiz, but I guess it's acceptable at certain times.

Two scenes which I must point out are: The bath tub and the couch scene.

The couch scene for Tessa was a defining moment and 360 of the human condition. Throughout the short I viewed her as a brute, but now we see her true reality. Her mind spoke before her heart. Need I say more about the bath tub scene.
