Surprisingly good
23 August 2004 | by MikeJackKearneySee all my reviews

Don't listen to that sourpuss. This is definitely the best short on the DVD. It is sentimental, but never cloying - and the performances are the best part. As far as production values are concerned, it's not, you know, 70mm Cinemascope or anything - but it looks terrific. I'd watch it if it were 10 hour long, it's so good. It's rare to see a warm, charming gay film with actual human characters - rather than caustic, venom-spewing queens. A lovely film, really.
