A surprisingly smart and funny study of "Is love-at-first-sight a cliché?". Set entirely at a hotel lounge with a 2-people cast played by two unknowns: a young female screenwriter Jillian (Leslie Dysart) meets the hot young "it" director Raphael (John Erickson) to discuss her script which he showed interested in making into a movie. This life-imitates-fiction short film is fashion designer turned writer/director Flora Kung's first directorial effort and shows off Kung's acute sensibility in dissecting the dating scene amongst the young and the privileged. As mush as the writing is smart and the camera and editing adequate, the actors, especially the female lead seem a bit stiff. Two top-notch actors in these roles would have definitely benefited the end movie.
