Involving but low key film around a common relationship
31 May 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A man is getting ready for his girlfriend to come over while he waits for his young daughter's mum to come and collect her. However she runs late and Emma stays in the house when Liz arrives. However Liz's behaviour makes clear her feelings about the potential to lose her father to anything.

A low-key film whose interest is taken form the very common problem faced by split parents. The young girl Emma clearly feels the separation and the loss of her father. For the most part of the film she plays up to spoil things between her father and Liz, however she also asks questions, seeking reassurances. It is a moving part of the film where her father cannot open his mouth to give her comfort that last longer than that evening.

The plot is simple but effective and it presents a common problem well. The direction uses the sets well and it has a lived in feel to the house, using each room well to create a more sterile feel in some scenes (the father and Liz in the kitchen) or a warmer cosier feel (the father and daughter in the front room).

The cast do well on the whole. Angelou makes it seem effortless by playing up and looking like she's having fun but at the same time she manages to be vulnerable when required. Morrissey is good and his inability to break bad news or to be honest is very real. Ford is OK but has little to do in the third role.

Overall a well made little short. On the first viewing it may be plot light and not really go anywhere but, as a snapshot of a common father/daughter relationship it is well played and involving.
