Short, sweet, and captivating
11 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a delightful piece of work! In about 7 minutes director Guy Shahar takes us on a journey. The Apologist, Joe, (Chris King) throws around b.s. apologies without any thought of the true meaning of the word. When confronted with a woman (Stephanie Bast) who won't accept his apology, he is forced to fight for forgiveness, and we witness a beautiful moment of vulnerability when the character gives his first heartfelt apology. The story rings so true in the crazy rush that is New York City, where people are constantly rushing past each other with little to no thought for anyone else. This short is shot well, the editing and visuals are great, and cheers to the actors and director for a job well done!!
