| Truel -clever, surprising, all too brief.
I've seen this twice on terrestrial telly and would gladly kill for it on DVD. It's a little gem of a piece, very clever but it is true that to explain the plot would be the ultimate spoiler...you just HAVE to watch it. It works as a period piece well enough, but the premise would easily transfer to stage or a contemporary setting, and if this has been done I'd love to see it. It could be the climax to a good full length feature but as a short it demonstrates how that medium, if properly worked, can provide a masterpiece of plot and characterisation where so many other films and programmes have singularly failed. It is a triumph. It could and should stand repeated viewing.
