In the funky world of making short films, it's often way too cool to resist doing your movie à la Tarantino or Ritchie. Nothing wrong with the odd shootout matched with witty repartée, but it's nice to see something delving into the human side for a change. The great luxury of a short (or in this case longer short) film is that you're excused from the demands of a bitter Hollywood turn to focus on the lowest common denominator. And let's face it, most would consider old people unsexy when opting at a choice containing Denise Richards on the other side. But here's a film that shows that it's okay just to tell a story again. And with the slew of awards this film won in 2001, thankfully audiences are realising it's okay to once again enjoy a film for its substance, rather than simply its style.
