From eddiethedemocrat - Fantastic Short

This little film popped up this morning on IFC while I was working on something on the laptop. The work fell to the side as I watched. I won't reveal anything about the plot other than to say that when the film ended, I was intrigued by the what-next possibilities more than any Hollywood flick in years has done to me. Wait. I will say this about the plot: it involves kids who grow up to be married couples. But there's none of the cheesy drama or pathetic humor you see in most big-budget stuff. I don't know how they shot this to give it the look that it has, but I'm no expert on that anyhow. Suffice it to say they did a great job of making the earlier parts look older, the later parts later, but still from an earlier period. You'll understand when you see it. The narrator's voice reminds me of a female Jean Shepherd. There's a sense of humor there that isn't a one-joke job. It isn't humor so much as it is FUN. I appreciate that... In a world where TV depends on poop jokes and movies depend on poor-taste pratfalls to get a laugh, this is clever and original. As a fellow who would like to someday make his own little film for IFC, this is inspiring. I am hoping the producers make a full-length version. This would be a fun film!
