excellent visual and emotional depiction of relationship complexities
This is visually a very rich and exciting film with interesting settings that contrast thoughtfully with the emotions being depicted. There is also a wonderful interplay of graphics and film, which established a sudden and surprising understanding of the mental process of the actor without the need for words. I found this very unusual and fascinating. The screenplay was very thought provoking and stimulating as to male/female roles and complexities of interaction. The tension between the needs and insecurities of the young couple and the obvious passion that they shared was well developed in such a short film. I felt I had viewed a much longer and detailed film and was surprised that such a journey had taken place in a mere 27 minutes! I loved this movie! Director/writer Zach Horton did an excellent job of capturing the tension and needs of the young couple - I'm waiting to see what he does in upcoming films . . . .
