Storyline

Hopelessly searching for true love, Antoine, a 29-year-old man, enters a train in a Parisian subway station, determined to make an announcement. Based on the fact that in France there are approximately five million single women, the attractive loner explains that with this unorthodox method, he hopes to get off at the next station accompanied by an interested woman. He sounds desperate, however, he is not the only one who feels this way. Written by Nick Riganas

THIS is how a short movie should be!
24 March 2003 | by madfoot-2See all my reviews

Oh, this broke my heart! The filmmaker showed such skill as he told the story of the woman on the train with no words whatsoever. The actress was great. She just really brought to life her loneliness, from her buck teeth to her terrible scarf. She was just trying so hard. This was super-great. Except it was a bit devastating in the end...
