Rushing off to meet his girlfriend (Lena Heady) young professional
(Martin Freeman) is desperate for transportation - in a city the size
of London, at rush hour, it is not so easy. He can't get a cab, runs
towards the station realizing time is running out. But he spots a
cyclist (Jodhi May) and persuades her to give him a lift on her bike
The thing is it is more than just a quick ride, as he is to find out. Despite the lack of dialogue the actors transcend sound with their looks, emotions and body language - A very cute short film with a longer and louder message.

I'm surprised that this short film is still rather obscure as it has
two actors who play major roles in two of the most lauded TV shows of
the day: Martin Freeman as Watson on Sherlock and Lena Headey as Cersei
on Game of Thrones. It's a nice little love story about a guy who gets
to the station only with the help of a cute-as-a-button bicycle courier
(Jodhi May) in order to welcome back his girl friend.
During the ride the two clicked immediately. When he gets to the station, he sees his girlfriend talking to another guy who seems to have come for her too. I was not really sure what was going on there. That was the only kinda letdown with the film Is she having an affair? Good for him then I guess as he has some kind of reason to see the bike messenger again. The film runs under seven minutes, so we can just speculate about the lead character's choices and everything that happens afterward. But still I'd recommend it, especially if you're a fan of one of the three actors involved.
