Storyline

A young family, driving along a road in Britain fall prey to a minor collision due to Dad's daydreaming about a golf game. The boy in the back of the car is in dismay as his newly won goldfish splits its bag. A rescue effort begins, culminating in Mum pouring the fish into a bottle of drinking water donated by a passing gorgeous blonde flagged down by Dad. The enigmatic driver of the stationary vehicle that was driven into spontaneously reveals the load of his van to be a hand made rocking horse. Not having a business card, he writes his number on Mum's arm. Hours later a recovery vehicle arrives, and the family are taken home with Dad fantasising about the blonde, Mum fantasising about the other driver, and the boy dreaming about a beach.

A bit of a head scratcher.
29 July 2003 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

I'm left thinking that this must have been an incisive social study that I just didn't get.

Maybe it's a commentary on how the unified family group are actually isolated from each other. Maybe the car breakdown is an indicative omen of a relationship breakdown. I just know that taken at face value it didn't seem to make a lot of sense.

It is well crafted though. A couple of nice effects and a general nice composition. Maybe one day I'll understand it!
