Very dull
2 May 2007 | by (antarctica) – See all my reviews

The only good reason to watch this short film (it's available on youtube, just search for the title), is if you wish to see a young Gillian Anderson in b&w & with a quality of film so grainy that she actually looks older than she does now, as she approaches her 40th birthday.

The plot, from what I could make out watching it, features Anderson's character standing in front a tenement building for four minutes, before walking into the building which, from the Significant close-up of a coat hanger symbol, is an illegal abortion house.

And that's it. Apart from something falling on the ground at around the three minute mark (impossible to tell what it was because of poor quality, and it was never built upon anyway), it's just four minutes of Anderson standing, pacing about, close-ups of her watch, and then entering a building.

Not exactly thrilling stuff. Also, it's silent so we don't get to hear her young squeaky voice.
