This gem of a short film was such a pleasant surprise to watch the first time around that I was left speechless. Overlooking some of the rough edges (slightly clichéd dialogue and glimpses of insincerity from the actors) this film is dazzling.
The set up is flawless and it carries you into the heart of the story, a fight between lovers. Painful moments between people that care for each other draws us into the story and the tension escalates as a quiet observer listens to it all. It’s a bit voyeuristic but that just adds to the intrigue.
The conclusion is so satisfying and unexpected that it brought a tiny bit of wonder back into the my day.
