Is interesting throughout but fails to have a satisfactory conclusion
16 March 2002 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

On her birthday a girl, Mo, meets a man, Pete, in a club who reminds her of a childhood friend and takes him home. While the evening continues her memories are played out in the present.

This short is very short and it builds well. It intercuts Mo's actions with memories of a birthday years ago when she was a child. As things start happening in the present so Mo's past is revealed to us. However this leads you to believe that it is building to something big or shocking.

However the end is a little of a letdown. Indeed the end leaves more questions than answers and I found it a real let down when I had assumed that something more concrete was going to be known by the end. It is still worth watching as it does leave you thinking about it for some time afterwards, trying to work it out - which is quite an accomplishment for a film so short.

Overall Jodhi May is good as Mo and the film is indeed very interesting and atmospheric. The director has given it a very professional feel to it but I couldn't help but feel let down by the lack of answers.
