| Intriguing short - very good performances
This was something a little different. Deceptively simple plot (but with a lot of truth) with an engaging script that was marred a little by some dodgy sound that made some of the lines incomprehensible. Just loved the Parisienne scene - nice touch. Charismatic leads pulled it off along with some humorous, quirky characters.

The music was also very effective ( I can still remember certain scenes with the accompanying music) Cool direction-effective blending of colour and character. Quick inte rcuts/jump cuts a la woody in deconstruction mode. Hope this gets a little more promotion and is shown at a few more festivals and hopefully on the box. While films of this calibre are being made, there is enormous hope for the local industry.
