Bleak
1 April 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A teenage girl gets ready to go out to meet her boyfriend, despite her mother's loud verbal disapproval of her clothes. She goes out to a deserted area with him and he begins to touch her up and have sex with her, however a dog reveals the true nature of her boyfriend.

Screened as part of the BBC2 compilation of shorts entitled `Ways to leave your lover' this was probably the most realistic depiction of modern romance for many people - fumbled sex, selfish relationships with self seeking, unstable people. However it does make for a pretty bleak short film. The depiction of the `love making' is so without any type of opinion or sensationalism that it is very real.

The meaning in the `dog' and the reaction of Leah when she gets home is a little too hard to read and I must admit to not totally getting it. However it is still very sharp and bleak, mainly because I (and I'm sure many others) can relate to this story a lot easier than I could to the other, more comic, stories told in the same season of shorts.

Bleak and honest but the meaning is a little unclear at the end.
