What an amazing story! Two characters developing a chameleon like personality, a level of metamorphoses. Brilliantly acted, sensitive to the core. The 'happy ending' made the intensity of feelings worthwhile.
5
What a treat, a real social commentary on that period of time that was COVID. This film beautifully documents how we had to find new ways to communicate both physically but also emotionally, a great choice thank you.

The BEST film of the season so far! Beautiful and quixotic, it untangles the complexities of life in a gentle and loving encounter.

It was 'talking heads' in parallel but with a happy ending. Great Spanish lesson.
5
Very unusual and brilliantly acted.
5
The relationship built beautifully to a final crescendo. I loved the intensity & emotion.
5
Very wholesome film, me and my grandma loved it!
4
A very interesting film, but not automatically emotionally engaging. The uncertainty about the reality of the teacher/student made me doubt their respective personas.
4
Super script on how computers have an effect on life.
4
A lot of fun.
4
Very moving. A shame we don't know the outcome.

A very moving and original film. Quite slow moving in places.
4
What a lovely film. Quite emotional. Very clever.

Found it long going back & forth. However loved the relationship that formed.
4
A really nice touching little film.
4
Nice film. Quite a good idea with a couple of surprises. I like the Spanish lessons too! Muy bien.
4
An enchanting piece of film making. It certainly illustrated the perils of 'getting to know someone' over the internet. But watching the evolution of their relationship was fascinating, nevertheless. A clever 'lockdown' film.
4
Never seen a film quite like this one. It kept my interest at all times!
4
Glad I kept concentrating until the end! The power of the internet. Grateful for the introduction before the film started.

Not my cup-of-tea. A product of the Covid period.

Slight but charming.

Interesting idea, engaging characters.

I was bored - would prefer something more either (i) compelling or (ii) humorous.

Good film but he was a self-centred wimp. Didn't like being in his company.
2
Too slushy. Typical American RomCom.

Waste of time coming.

Not for me. Sometimes it felt like voyeurism at others like being on the end of the telephone with a depressive. I think it was much more fun for Cariño and Adam to make the film than for us to watch it. Not even the excellent introduction could save it. All stops and starts and ums and ohs.

Films are screened at The Harlington in Fleet every fortnight on Mondays. Everyone is welcome.
