Why Watch? This short from Lawrence Bourke shrugs off the challenges of small talk and quick poignancy as if they couldn’t have possibly caused problems for a quaint story. Although it feels at first a little too French, there’s nothing pompous about it. The result is a soothing look at a boy and girl meeting briefly at a bus stop. Nothing complicated, but still a lot to be found.

It could be the beginning of a huge love epic or it could be a brief moment like the last bite of desert that satisfies but disappears forever. It’s strength is possibility, and with a high concept and a cute couple, the camera helps immensely by keeping them separate until they truly make a connection. The result is a reminder that small moments of beauty happen every day – even while waiting for public transport. It’s sympathetic, smile-inducing work.

What will it cost? Only 4 minutes.
