great concept and story, great acting, what a short should be
I watched this at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. This played before one of the main features. A lot of short films feel like they need to do something flashy and cryptic. This usually means all the effort and budget goes into making something that looks like a music video with no focus on the story (quite often no discernible story). Not this short film though. It has a story which is unique but well fleshed out in the short. Also the pacing is great in that there is a beginning a middle and an end. Very few shorts I have seen bother with all 3 parts often leaving out the ending. I almost don't want to say much about the plot of this short film because I feel going in cold might be the best way to enjoy this, if you ever get a chance to watch this. It opens with a guy being caught cheating on his girlfriend. He then goes into an explanation about why he cheated on this girlfriend. And oh boy what a story it is! I feel like the story might be a satire/commentary on all the attention grabbing reality shows going on around us. It was a great short, possibly the best I have seen. Please watch this if you ever get a chance and its available with Netflix or other provider of choice.
