I saw this short on the collection of "Boys Briefs 3". The appropriate last entry, the story follows two men who have not seen each in other in a long time after a relationship that ended badly. The story is vague on the details; with good reason, because viewers tend to pay attention a little harder to try and figure them out. This first few minutes are painfully awkward as the two men are unsure how to respond to one another. As the story progresses, we learn that despite really caring about each other, it just never worked out between them. The performances here are excellent, and even the dialogue is spot on. I love the thing with the sugar- "It's just not sweet enough!" which is an obvious metaphor for their entire relationship. The ending was surprising, and sweet, if not bitterly so. It's worth a view by anyone. You forget the men are gay, as I think the story is easily relatable for anyone who had a relationship that didn't end on the best of terms.
