3 July 2013 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a simple story of an embittered man who sits at the end of a bar. He has been to war and seems edgy and depressed. Despite the loving attention he gets from a young woman, he seems to be totally absorbed in self pity. We are asked to understand his standoffishness and accept his ennui. There is a lot of byplay at the bar, including a bet arranged by a comrade at the bar. Our hero has hopes to be done with the war and return home; however, his friend is to be included in his plans. Things do go haywire, but I will not reveal what happens. The strength of the episode is a low key performance, framed by the bar. Our man sits pretty much with his back to the bar and gives reasons why he wants no attention. The conclusion was obvious from the beginning. A lesser effort.
