CGiii Comment

Stunningly photographed and distinctly restrained.

Stylish beyond its peers - if you are going to make a short then this is how you do it.

Defurne has talent and this, unfortunately, seems to be the last film he has made - a fine talent that has simply disappeared.

Update...after nearly 11 years...Mr Defurne has re-appeared. Welcome back!
