Short and sweet (very sweet)
23 October 2002 | by Rogue-32See all my reviews

I like short films when they're done well, and this one is in that category ~ it's a cheeky little affair that keeps you guessing until the end, with no wasted scenes, no filler, just The Situation At Hand (so to speak). The Mols should do more of these together.
