Funny at the same time Touchy.

2009 Cannes winner Short film ''SIGNS'' is an amazing romantic short film. This 12 minutes speechless film is about a lonely boy who start communicating with a cute girl in next building using written signs and eventually they met each other. With a very simple concept, creative director Patrick Hughes made a master piece, actually one of sweetest films i have ever seen. This short film might seems quiet unrealistic , but i think most people don't to want to see daily boring mundane reality at film. They rather wish some fantasy and unrealistic events unconsciously.

I think the message of the short film is : Love doesn't always talk , sometimes might be expressed even from a piece of paper. In a world of social networking and cellphone, signs are still powerful as long as they mean a lot.

Whole film is well edited and I think background music really is cool and quiet touchy , but over exaggerated Techno sound effects which made it less emotional. Couple of humorous scenes and at ending part both of the characters' anxiety and final meeting sensational scene made whole film extraordinary . Besides, within only 12 minutes representing 8 days stories is a very hard job, which Patrick Hughes have done very smoothly.
