Sweet little short that builds well despite the music not working for me as well as it should have
24 March 2012 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

A simple little sketch this one: two office workers spend their days next to one another but hardly say a word. An affectionate gesture (a smiley face made out of Post-It notes) starts a relationship between the two of them that consists of more of the same, with each of them trying to outdo the other in terms of creativity.

The concept is simple and is nicely summed up by the title, but although very short and slight, the film does work because of how sweet it is. The two actors manage to have a certain amount of chemistry between them despite the lack of words. In particular Charity Wakefield is strong – and I specifically liked the close-up on her eyes in the stationary cupboard. Ingleby didn't strike me as the right person for the role, even though he did do well – perhaps I am biased because I always think of his small role in Spaced when I look at him.

The direction and the creation of the Post-It art is cheery and upbeat; I liked the camera being part of the unspoken flirting between the two – quick glimpses, sharp edits, nothing too fancy. The one thing I thought could have been done better was perhaps the music; I found it too cheesy for the film and it actually knocked some of the charm out of the film for me due to how obvious it was. Despite that though, at three minutes long, this little short film is charming enough to carry the idea off.
