A balletic meeting between two lovers progresses from a woodland tryst up to the mountain tops.

There are some interesting camera effects with multiple exposures or a vanishing figure. Unlike Clarke's early Dance in the Sun, or her later dance-based films (Four Journeys into Mystic Time), A Moment in Love places cinema uppermost and the dancing second. As the dancers move, so does the camera, becoming almost like a dancer itself. Says Clarke, "I started choreographing the camera as well as the dancers in the frame". At one point, the dancers appear to be suspended in the clouds.

Although an interesting piece, especially for pushing boundaries, it is more contrived than her 'pure dance' shorts, and the dancing is more rigid. It has the feeling of attempting something that is a bit beyond the technology of the time.
