A poem about the fantasies and realities of love...
26 June 2004 | by sylvain_chaureauSee all my reviews

So many people seem to be searching for something they feel they don't have in their love relationship - maybe something that doesn't even exist. "Everything Goes" is a poem about the fantasies and realities of love.

The delicate game of seduction and betrayal between Hugo Weaving, Abbie Cornish and Sullivan Stapleton was handled brilliantly. They all felt like fully developed characters, a real achievement when you consider this is a short film.

This film was screened with Robert Lepage's feature "The Far Side of the Moon", and while I also enjoyed that film, "Everything Goes" left me with more to think on.

This was by far the best short I saw at the Sydney Film Festival this year.
