A very charming and introspective film. Aptly named.
I remember catching this film on our local TV station a few years ago and I've remembered it ever since. They used to run short films all the time and many of them were okay but kind of, well, uninspired. I believe the best film makers are those that take you completely out of your role as viewer and into the story and this short film certainly does that. The pacing, the casting, the awkward tension... it's all evident and yet there's a rather powerful subtlety or restraint shown here. The director is pulling you into his story- not bashing you over the head with it. I found myself wanting to strangle the characters at times as they fumble toward (and away from) their feelings for each other and then realizing that I was identifying with them. It's really well done and highly recommended. I'd love to see a feature with this story expanded or see something else by this director.
