| Nasty little film
I saw this film back when it was first released as a short with some feature that I can't now remember. This one stuck in my mind. It's pretty well made, but it has a really nasty, unpleasant air about it. The poor young couple who impulsively steal a car for a joyride on a summer's day and then return it are actually no nice at all.

For some reason it reminds me of another film I saw at about the same time called The Ragman's Daughter. Also not a nice film. For a long time I thought the two films were made by the same director, but it seems not.

I have to give it 7 because for what it is, it's done well. But it left rather a bad taste in my mouth. It's also memorable as the first time I saw Rik Mayall, who played a nasty policeman.
