Storyline

Ever been so frustrated with your job that you just wanted to explode and leave it all behind? Meet Marlon, your average, neurotic, number-crunching kind of guy. All he wants is some peace and quiet so he can gt his work done. Meet Lanel, your beyond average, flamboyant, and excessively annoying co-worker. All she wants is to get to know Marlon a bit better. But, a man who is so passionate about his work can have trouble relating to other people. Especially when that other person is Lanel. THE ROPES is a tale of two mis-matched individuals who are forced to deal with each other on a daily basis. You never know who is going to come along in life and turn things upside down.

Loved it!
13 January 2006 | by (DC) – See all my reviews

I loved "The Ropes." Garthe demonstrates excellent directing skills in this unique comedy short. The character development in this film reveals quirky, empathetic characters that we come to love, despite their annoying laughs, silly habits, or awkwardness. In the span of less than fifteen minutes, Garthe is able to take us on a hilarious journey that leaves us cringing (Lanel's laugh), feeling sympathy (Marlon's routine), laughing (the whole time), and ultimately wanting Part II. The direction is fabulous down to the last detail... Garthe doesn't miss a beat. The result is an intelligent, offbeat, even poignant short that left me smiling and rewinding to watch it again.
