A sensible story.
5 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best shorts I've seen so far. The film (although slightly confusing at the beginning) discloses the director's ability (Randall Good) to tell a story that involves a woman's point of view. He shows sensibility and understanding. The film is certainly a great trip into the woman's mind and her desire to establish a relationship with a stranger on a train. Great moments and a funny ending make a very pleasant cinematic experience. Also, the two leading characters seemed very awkward with each other when being on the island, which gives an atmosphere of total discomfort; something that we all can relate to. At least all of us women...

Great film!

I also recommend the film "Shower" from the same director.
