I La La love this short film!
18 January 2004 | by WoodyRockhardoSee all my reviews

I just finished watching on a weekly short film show called "Imagemakers." When it ended, i gave it a standing ovation. Sheer brilliance is what this film was all about. Though the characters seem like never in a million years they would exist, there's still a part of me that longs for the feelings the man and the woman had for each other. If you ever get the chance to watch this, don't pass it up!
