Very funny and enjoyable short

Whenever you are in a relationship, there are signs to watch out for to let you know when things are basically starting to come to an end. This film, set entirely in the director's kitchen, shows us about 15 of them – some funny, some sad, mostly twisted.

Apparently made for £15 in Tony Roche's own kitchen, this is a funny and imaginative short film. I'm not sure what the money was spent on if this was true but the film is certainly very good value for the money spent on it. The scenario is simple – a static shot of two people across a kitchen table; each scene lasts about 5-10 seconds and is preceded by a title screen that sets it up. One or tow of them are a little sad, one is out and out weird but the rest are consistently funny and drew good laughs from the audience I saw it with. Barratt (you'll know him from the Nathan Barley adverts on TV – I say adverts because you probably didn't bother with the actual show) and Earle are both good and help make the material even funnier thanks to their good delivery but it is the writing that makes it work.

Overall this is short and risks running out of steam before the end but it doesn't and remains good right till the end. The concept is good but the writing turns it into something much better by adding a twisted sense of humour to the mix and delivering a product that is enjoyable and well worth seeing.
