i need more stars !By Jason (49 reviews) from South Ockendon , 22 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]I saw this at the cinema earlier this year and I can't overstate enough how utterly brilliant it is.
The director Sean Ellis has expanded on his original short film to create a wonderfully witty and well written love story that has some genuine laugh out loud moments.
There's an almost dreamy quality to the film as you're drawn into the night time world that Ben Willis occupies as he tries to get over his break up.
Just a great film all round. Funny, sweet, well written, well acted and a satisfying ending. What more could you ask for ?

give it a chanceBy boredofterriblefilms (5 reviews) , 04 Dec 2011Might not be every ones cup of tea but actually really quite impressed by this! was not expecting great things out of this seemingly low budget film that i had never heard of, but glad i happened upon it . Intersesting a bit different and well worth a watch.
Polished but unlovelyBy a customer , 03 Dec 2011This film comes across as a film student's first attempt. Unlikely scenarios, cardboard cut out characters and with at least two scenes that could have been removed and so seem self indulgent.
The lighting and cinematography is nice but the dialogue pretentious and flat and the main character is either needy or a pervert depending on whether his ability to freeze time (which has nothing to do with the plot) is real or imagined.
The film tries to be clever and arty and it isn't either. It doesn't have a single original idea and is unconvincing. It seems to be aimed at teenage virgins or was at least written by one, presumably the director when he was 21.
Turned off after 20 mins YawnBy Kremmen (3 reviews) , 25 Nov 2011My mate Phill raved about this movie , however I never got beyond the first 20 mins , so much speaking to the camera stops being clever and arty and just gets annoying , maybe it got better I will never know.
Cash Back CardBy PigMinicom (5 reviews) , 31 Oct 2011What a fantastic little film.
I suggest that you use your computer to watch this rite away.
It's the bust use you can put the next 20 minuets to.
Surprisingly wonderful!By gjbrake (4 reviews) from Milton Keynes , 06 Oct 2011What a wonderful film this turned out to be!
To be honest, I only watched it in a how-will-he-be-able-to-expand-on-that-short way but I was very pleasantly surprised.
It also makes much more sense that the short film it it's full form. Ben's facination with beauty is better explained and thus feels more genuine and less forced. Little moments are given a proper beginning and end and mostly the way he turns the film around from the opening scenes and the part that makes up the short to the end is brilliant, and the very end is lovely.
Where the short is, perhaps neccessarily, one dimensional the full length movie shows a full life and how Ben grows and changes in that life.
