Presentable Studio short.
18 September 2002 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

It's possible to see director Tourneur's sensitive approach to his work in this passable Metro short about industrial relations. It is however hard to belive that Mullhall's duties as office worker sustain his spacious scrubbed up studio art department replica of a family home.

This one holds attention quite well even without synchronised speech and film making is more assured than most of these program fillers.
