SYNOPSIS/PLOT An animated short that follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him.
PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"A six-minute mood-setter about a gangly paper-pusher who meets the single gal of his dreams (...) Christophe Beck's score is the cherry on top this slice of animated perfection." (Peter Debruge: Variety)
"John Kahrs has created a love letter to romance ó a beautifully rendered black-and-white piece that will sweep you away." (Betsy Sharkey: Los Angeles Times)
"Successfully blends an old Hollywood vibe with polished animation (...) Kahrs sets a nice pace, with a huge assist from the Christophe Beck score." (Peter Hartlaub: San Francisco Chronicle)
"A mainstream but blissfully inventive Disney short (with a touch of Pixar magic) about a young couple who meet on a subway platform and try to reconnect via a squadron of paper airplanes from one office tower to another. Itís the definition of short and sweet." (Ty Burr: Boston Globe)
"Brilliant from start to finish (...) in the spirit of David Lean's "Brief Encounter" (...) it's beautifully stylized with particular attention given to big-city light and shadow." (Jeff Shannon: Chicago Sun-Times)
"I wonít quibble with the filmís expert hand with the heartstrings, but its satisfactions have everything to do with its familiar paces." (Kimberley Jones: Austin Chronicle)
