Furthermore, if she isn't, what is the woman capable of doing?Written by
This short film jumps back and forth in time as a woman relives the events of the previous night. We know she had a fight with her boyfriend before leaving his apartment, and then she wakes up bruised and battered. She didn't leave that way, so what happened?
The "what" that happens isn't as important as the reaction to it and the aftermath. Women, in particular, should be willing to part with less than 10 minutes of their time and check this out. You will not be disappointed. It's not an ending you easily see coming.
Short films need to pack a punch in a tiny amount of time. It's like the short story versus a novel. You have to be familiar with characters and situations (or totally thrown off) in order for everything to work. Everything works here ... very well, and it is mandatory viewing for those into more transgressive cinema.
