Corin Edwards’s review:
First a disclaimer, I hate jazz.
Caught this short film last night, and was absolutely bowled over by it. A brilliant story, elegant cinematography, perfect performances, and just so deliberately 'quirky'. But not deliberately 'quirky' in a Zach Braff way. I didn't wish for anyone involved in this to fall down a flight of stairs. This is deliberately 'quirky' in a good way.
Now for the jazz.
This film has jazz in it, and as well all know jazz is terrible. But the jazz belongs here, it makes sense, it's like that bit on the moon in 2001 with that ear piercing tone that makes everyone wince in pain. Sure it's a godawful horrible noise, but it's supposed to be. Same thing here, this film survived it's own jazz soundtrack. How that is possible I do not know, but I love the film all the more for it.
My only possible complaint about this film is that it does not go on forever.
