Another cleaver script from Pork Chop Pics
22 May 2015 | by leigh-79-383370See all my reviews

It's always a challenge to tell a satisfying story within the time frame of a short film. 'Tea for two' achieves this in a ingenious way. As with many of Pork Chop Picture's films, it ends with a reveal, what is cleaver about this reveal is it exposes a larger story that we, the viewer were not party to and that eureka moment definitely does the job.

For me the penny dropped about 20 seconds before the point where the film subtly lets you into it's secret which I think is a testament to how well it's paced and how well you as the viewer are given 'just enough' information.

There is some slightly strange dialogue at the beginning of the film and characters seem to be doing some very odd things which are the source of some humour. I was reminded of Fawlty Towers at times. Because you're not really sure what's going on, you might put you off watching further but it all clicks into place once you've seen the whole film. This is definitely a film that deserves a second watch, where you'll undoubtedly see things you missed the first time.

The actors are well cast and all play their parts well but Amanda Barrie stands out as the star for me. She is mesmerising to watch with a screen presence and cheeky humour you cannot help but like. In my opinion an under-utilised UK talent that I would love to see more of in the cinema.

All is all a very satisfying watch. I know this is a step up in production values for the Porkers. I hope to see more from these guys now they've upped there game.
