A painfully beautiful story of love lost
1 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The beauty and crispness of the visuals in this stunning short film are juxtaposed against the painful messiness of love lost. Mireille Enos and Kevin Rahm portray so touchingly that terrible state of affairs when affection and care have replaced what used to be love. The quiet expanse of the landscape provides a sense of hope and openness even in the midst of endings and closings.

The director clearly has a visual eye, surprising the viewer with strange and beautiful images like the diver by the side of the road. These fleeting, somewhat ethereal images fit so perfectly in this other-worldly landscape.
