Restores my faith in American film.
26 October 2003 | by (Normandy, France) – See all my reviews

I happened on this film while in California this past September. Generally, I'm not a fan of the short film format but on my friends insist we decided to go to a nearby short film festival. An admitted snob about cinema I expected nothing from these independents. And that's exactly what I got until this picture came up. Right away I found myself smiling like an idiot while being drawn into its rugged and dreamlike world. The story was charming, humorous and efficiently told. The artistry magnificent. The acting a homage to Hollywood's past. It was as close to a perfect short as I think I've ever seen. It's been a long time since I've seen anything from the States, feature or not, that made me feel this inspired about cinema. Bravo.
