Great Short Movie
27 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This a very original short movie which tells the tale of a researcher (Sandra Oh) who, during a study on female condoms, has as her subject the girl (Suzy Nakamura) currently dating her former boyfriend. As the story develops, the relationship between the two unfolds.

The acting is pretty good and the movie (though a short) is able to develop an interesting plot. The director, Grace Lee, who also is credited for writing the story, did a very good job. The style of the movie is very compact, but it is able to establish a situation and take it to a conclusion within 30 minutes.

This award winning short movie is definitely a must see.
