Good atmosphere and chemistry, but too much plot
There's no particular need to spoil the plot of this short film (the pictures pretty much give it away as it is), other than the basics - a man is cheating on his girlfriend with another man, who has no idea that he has a girlfriend. He also plans on leaving her. Once the other man realizes his lover has an attractive girlfriend, he suddenly becomes much less interested in their relationship breaking up.
While I was a bit stumped on the casting for the main man who has both boyfriend and girlfriend (we keep hearing he's supposed to be much younger than his girlfriend and even the boyfriend, but...I can't say I saw it on screen), the roles are gifted with charming and likable enough performances, especially Bernard Forcher as the "other man". He does quite a bit with his eyes, and has real charisma. Outside of the acting, the dialogue and contrivances are clunky and somewhat arch, but the scene where the three come to an understanding, so to speak, is quite fun.
There are a few more scenes after this, as an epilogue of sorts, and while there's nothing wrong with them, they really weren't necessary. They mostly give the impression that this would have been planned as a longer film but was crammed into a much shorter time. Sometimes less is more, and this is probably one of those cases.
