CGiii Comment

Quite brilliant...if only more short films could achieve this heady standard.

It's all in the detail...Leskinen - obviously - has a good eye...and, a good ear. And, rather handy with a pen, the writing is as sharp as a tack.

The parents are hysterical, the young lead has a bright future...if only more short films had this quality of acting...

Mr Leskinen: A talented auteur...
