So simple yet so true!
3 August 2005 | by miss_cameraSee all my reviews

Wow! I really hope to see more short movies of Michelle Paradise. She's definitely a good writer, and a good actress too. This short is hilarious! It's simple, and yet so true. I like the look of it too : the editing is great, and so are the shots. The storyline is brought with a nice touch, giving the viewer the feeling that the main character is actually speaking to her (I could say 'him', but I don't think a lot of guys have seen this movie :P). It's funny, fresh, and it gives us the chance to realize that much of what's going on in the lesbian community... well, really looks like this :P I bought the 'Watching You' DVD without having seen any of the films featured on it, and I can say that its worth the price if you want to own 'The Ten Rules'. Check it out! :)
