Film Description
A look into the dangers of one night stands.
Sad and funny at the same time.
A glimpse into my love life?
The music - Shell Full of Sand is by me and Gossamer.

This movie is very loose on "plot." I prefer to think of it as a "visual poem." In fact it's based on a poem from my recent poetry book, Apart. It captures a particular point in my life, one that I'm sure most women, if not people in general have experienced.

Warning - Contains mature themes.

A very real look at short-term serial monogamy...theres a sad and desolate undercurrent here, but it's also pretty damn funny....

This could have been a weepy look at unsuccessful and unfulfilling one night stands, after which we'd all feel bad for the narrator and write supportive little reviews. What yanks it out of that soap-opera-ish melodramatic ooze is the brilliant and frequently hilarious writing. The situations themselves, though not atypical, are in no way funny, but the telling of them often is.

Supporting the superior writing is some tight editing, using available scenes extraordinarily well to tell the story, and a perfect, almost deadpan narration. The tune that underscores the flick also helped...it had a nice groove and highlighted the story without getting in the way.

Terrific work...and it's going to be a while before I forget "Why did you bite my face!"

I always watch movies unlogged until I find one that makes me sit up and say Wow! This is a really good movie although I would consider defining a more definite ending, as the days of ambiguous endings are over( but that may have been what made it so unique). Anywho if you could let me in on the secret to those fantastic openinig graphics. I likes!

Seen as a "visual poem", as intended by the director, it's really great ! Wow !

This is the most original story I have seen anyone make. Excellent work! If you have a spare minute, could you please tell me how you made those custom opening credits. I would like to look into doing something like that when I understand the game better.

A great movie! Even without any action. But instead of it with much feelings and emotions. Wow, and that impressive voice!
Congratulation to this little masterpiece of both of you!

Good movie, it was entertaining and well made. More a collection of memories than a 'story', but that doesn't stop it being thoroughly enoyable.

I wasn't sure if this was based on real life or not, but who in their right mind makes up being bitten in the face?

Great...simple but the sad truth...

Posted on January 15, 2006

Script: 3 stars; The idea was very good and original, and it gave a clue for where it could have being going. Though in the end you seemed to have rushed it a little bit; if it were more developed, I think it could have brought up a lot of better interpretation (if you wanted to make such a ending) or still a more deep ending non the less. Still unclear is if she died for the abortion or what (although the way you implied she died was really "soft", for lack of a better word in my vocabulary). The narration was good, but I find it harsh to put in some cues in the middle of a narration, especially if done with the same voice (although I guess you didn't have anyone else to act it). In addition, I thought there should have been more transition from one night stand to the other, it would have given more precise ideas to the personality of the main character.

Editing: 5 stars; Very nice backgrounds, scenes were very nicely selected and pieced together.

Music: 3; Only one piece, but it worked very good. Still, you should have changed it when the girl and hers one-night stands met at the graveyard.

P.S.: Got me on the floor for the cue with the actor, sure HE was satisfied.

Am i to understand correctly that you killed all the one night standers?
Or did i misunderstand the entire story?

The corpse bit, then the final in the cemetery?

Interesting none the less, cusotm credits are probably inflating this movie by a star or 2 as well. For those interested, its just a series of frames played one after the other using static background in stage set im guessing.

I see the poetry in this film and enjoyed its tale.

However, when reading poetry, I dont stop and say to myself "what the f***?!".

Obviously the "biting" part ruined this piece of art.

Good luck!

That's a tough one to rate for me, a bit to open on sexuality (even if it's left to the imagination) for my taste but can't blame you for that, the title should have told me...
Technically it's both stunning at times and at some not so stunning.
Can't say that the Story worked for me, but honestly said I think that's something which will be true for most men, but after all it got me thinking, still does, I say that counts for a good movie.

That is one sweet movie and a pleasure to watch. So for this time I forget about plot rules and the like, I enjoyed watching it too much than to give you less than 5 stars.
BTW: The musictrack is GREAT. A reason to watch the movie just because of it, even if the movie weren't great as well :)

This is the first five star rating I have given out... I think. First one in a while. The plot was great, the music was great, the editing was flawless. And it was a sappy romance... yet I watched the whole thing. Great work. Please check out my movies as well.

Wet nose kiss to you
Small moment to watch behind in our girly lives...;before to walk again.....
I liked the music, the progression of the story stelling.... your voice too, one that give desire to go tickling you.
Perhaps a few fix to do with the micro to balance the voice, i think it is more a balance technical problem, and it would give to this moment of life more power.Yes a small fix to make the voice seeming more distant, more as a thought coming from deep, perhaps a bit quieter tone. Else this minor thing it was a very nice job.

Im sorry, but i'm backspacing alot because i'm laughing so hard. I want to take the 2nd man and sub hm in the famous Jerry Magquire picture .. 'You had me at the bite in the face.'. ROFL..

This is excellent. So sad and true. I'm actually a guy, but I still recognize myself... in most of the characters actually. It's one of those "reflect on your choices" films, and it's very well executed, because it makes you feel.

A very original piece. The concept actually has alot of promise as a feature length movie. Although it was short, punchy and funny i think you should have spent more time introducing the characters to us as it would have given more dept to the story and made the final gag that bit more comedic. Still great effort, with a nice OST and good editing.

I don't think this movie make any sence. Realy. Not any sence.
And if it didn't, that would the only good thing (except the VO's).

One star for the VO's.
