A fitting tribute to the memory of Adrienne Shelly
This is a very short mock-opera, very entertaining. Should be of great interest to fans of Hal Hartley, and the late Adrienne Shelly. It is fun, extremely quirky. The music, which I believe to be a Hartley original, is excellent, the actors look at though they are having fun. I found this on a compilation in Canada last year, Possible Films, which is a collection of short films from Hal Hartley, nothing against anything else on the disc, but this is by far and away the highlight of the disc. The basic plot is simple, there is only so much you can do in an 8 minute musical, but two muses set about to bring together a man and a woman, but there are roadblocks. I would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone.
