Godard may have suggested that all you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun, but sometimes, it is enough for the girl to simply have a camera. This sweet, and contained, short film shows how effectively a tale can told with as little as a boy, a girl and a bus stop.
A Sure Moment is totally an actors’ film and it features very nice performances by both the actors. That said, the actress, Laetitia de Lafore, gets a special shout-out for her ability to so effectively convey her character’s exhaustion (from a day of walking around) as well as her enthusiasm for interacting with the quiet stranger she encounters at the bus stop.
This film belongs in a sub-genre I call, “Will put a smile on your face.” There can never be too many films made in that genre.
