A very dramatic, yet subtle portrayal of friendship/love.
5 September 2008 | by claire2000See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this short film and thought it very emotive. The storyline had added impact due to the subtlety of the portrayal of the relationship of the couple set against the dramatic event of the car crash. It was also highly reminiscent of the cruelty and/or unfairness of life in that we cannot always have what we want and that we don't always appreciate what we have until it's too late. Similarly, it raised the question about the value of friendship and whether genuine friendships can exist between men and women without one party wishing to take things further. Is that ever a good idea? A lot of messages were packed into this excellent film - I loved it.
