Review of: Laundry

Wonderful Tones
My first review!I found the simplicity of the story - with the occasional self-defacing twist of humour - made this a very easy short to follow, but with the all-important "What happens next?" always present.The acting, the voices and the unobtrusive music were all great, except for the Rose-Seller scene which I didn´t feel matched the rest of the subtle and gentle tone of the film. The camera work appeared to be very clean except for the Coffee Scene where the cuts seemed a little slow.The final scene, recalling that first touch of the hands as the laundry was gathered from the path, brought the whole film to an endearing "Casablanca" style end. Will they meet again in Vancouver???Very enjoyable.Thanks,Brandon
