Storyline

This short film was in competition at the Cannes films Festival (2008). It follows two teenagers that leave class and meet in the record store looking for the next Buzzcocks single. As there is only one copy left, they have to listen to it together. Soon enough it becomes into a very funny and honest discovery of sex. Great actors and nicely done, this is definitely one of the coolest portrayals of first time sex and was well deserving of the Palme D'Or.

Great short by the writer of closer!
26 May 2008 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

This short film was in competition at the Cannes films Festival this year(2008). It follows two teenagers that leave class and meet in the record store looking for the next Buzzcocks single. As there is only one copy left they have to listen to it together. Soon enough it becomes into a very funny and honest discovery of sex. Great actors and nicely done, this is definitely one of the coolest portrayals of first time sex I've ever seen on screen, and was well deserving of the Palme D'Or (that eventually went to the short about the kid with divorced parents who wants a robot called "Megatron" - cute, but come on!). I'm now looking forward to other work by the director Sam Taylor Wood! PS: The film is dedicated to Anthony Minghella's memory
