A beautiful, impressionistic short film, which makes its point without having to spell it out. Sometimes I think titles automatically filed under what DVD stores call "gay interest" are better when they treat their subject in this kind of short-film format--and when they dare to explore genres other than "teenager coming out" and "coy is-he-or-isn't-he romantic comedy." This film takes only three minutes to tell us all we need to know about the two characters, and yet there's a definite, uneasy current of suspense (signalled by the approaching train) that isn't quite resolved at the end. Yet you emerge feeling as if you've seen a full-length movie. How many major Hollywood releases can make that claim?
