I loved this film. Very smart writing and dry humor. Especially fascinating was the "flashback" picture sequences of the little girls and the three brothers. The film's tension is advanced nicely with a back and forth argument between the husband and wife, who are played with appropriate drollness that only accentuates their "stuck with you" demeanors. The husband's Walter Mitty-like daydreams also add humor in a playful way, without sinking into cynicism. The director utilizes a deft touch with the actors and the material, delivering an end-feeling that is difficult to achieve in a seven minute film. Overall, it is good story-telling -- compact, fun and well-paced.
