Great acting in a concise story
9 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This short film economically tells a story without wasting a moment. It left me wondering what else happens; the back story before the action we see on screen, the resulting relationship between the father and daughter. It is beautifully written and well acted. The tension that builds in the story is shown realistically but it is not resolved falsely.

It has the realistic flavor of eavesdropping on a family that the best films provide

I am pleasantly surprised it is finally getting the exposure it well deserves.
