Well made but not especially engaging
24 January 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a reasonably well made short film, though I never felt all that engaged. Much of it could just be the subject matter. Watching a couple scream at each other and treat each other like dogs is pretty tough to watch--at least for me. I never have liked "The Bickersons" or the "Mama" skit on "The Carol Burnett Show". Some of this could be because I was a psychotherapist and have simply heard enough. However, if there is such behavior AND the payoff is there, I can still enjoy the film. Unfortunately, the payoff is only okay--and not worth wading through the rest.

Now I am NOT saying this is a poorly made film--the acting and direction are just fine. I just feel that life is too short to watch this sort of stuff--thank goodness this was such a short little film.

Just not my sort of film, but perhaps you'll like it.
