A beach, a couple, a man who has been bitterly disappointed in his past and one single camera shot from far away. The protagonists in this brief comedy act like playing pieces among the scenic bay filled with false harmonies. Wounds don’t heal in a day and sometimes not even in 15 years. –Oldenburg

I admired the continuous long-shot, I think it was interesting to keep that shot throughout but I guess it was there as the dialogue and the acting was strong enough to hold that shot without making the film unbearable. It was almost as if witnessing an encounter of strangers from afar. As Heather said below - who knows where this could of gone?
