Storyline

In this 16 minute short, a director faces a rebellion of sorts when his star tells him she is fed up having to appear naked in pretty well every scene. What follows is an incoherent sequence of scenes - many with female nudity - and it's left entirely to the viewer to determine what it all means. Written by garykmcd

Awkward movie, great message.
13 September 2018 | by cinephile-27690See all my reviews

This was a good movie, and it only lasts about 15 minutes, which is a plus.

But the title gives away it's flaw. The movie is mainly set in the shower, with a teen boy embracing a woman in it. The scene is uncomfortable, and really serves no purpose. But the surrounding content is good.

My favorite part was after the fantasy sequence in the shower. (Yes, this movie is the lustful desire of a boy eating breakfast.) The boy looks at the screen and says: "There's a lot of things in life worth living for, isn't there?" Which, no matter how you see that line, is a great line.

For this boy, it's bathing with a woman. What is it to you? Hopefully your reason has more importance.
