I stumbled across this yesterday, wasn't expecting much, but I am so glad to have found this gem of a short film!! It took me by surprise and was a complete delight, added to my favourites list without a doubt.

Every element is truly perfect in my eyes - the gorgeous cinematography, which is used so deliberately but also so naturally; music which works well but doesn't take away the limelight of the scenes; absolutely brilliant acting; editing which flows so well you don't even think about the fact you're watching a film; and fresh, original writing.

I cannot praise this short highly enough. I am a writer myself, and a gay girl, so I have very high standards for queer content, but this one stole my heart - it's not just great representation, it's so well written.

It goes between past and present, which can be the downfall of a lot of fiction, but this one weaves in and out of time periods SO well. The scenes when the girls are young feel so youthful and adventurous, but also totally realistic in the uncertainty of things. The scenes when they're older feel more solid and mature, but also hopeful and sweet. The balance of everything is just right.

In terms of queerness, it's also just right. The fact these girls are gay in a conversation country is not unrealistically ignored, but it's also not tragic (as we are all so used to!!) Also, amazingly, there are steamy(ish) scenes that are NOT male-gazey! I could relate to these girls and also find hope in them; this felt like a short for me, not to educate straight people.

Literally five minutes after I finished it, I restarted it, intending to just see how the first scene plays knowing how the entire short goes... and I ended up completing it. It just sucked me back into the wonderfulness. And there were new things to notice on a rewatch; the opening scene has so much more to it when you know their history. I love all the quiet telling gestures and looks, as well as the outright spoken adoration.

This is probably the longest review I've written on this site, but I couldn't help it. This short came to me just when I needed it, and I want others to find it too.
