Between Us (1990) [Short]

Australia (MIFF 1990 , Fiction)
Director: Bill Mousoulis

A deceptively simple, poetic examination of conversations, class back-grounds, individual hopes and dreams, set in Melbourne suburbia. Rick, a young washing-machine repairman, bumps into an old school friend Monica, who's now the lead singer of a band on tour from Sydney. Soon infatuated, Rick questions the worth of his predicament.

By focusing on ordinary characters, everyday events and almost embarrassingly naturalistic dialogue the film suggests the sadness, triumph and mystery of people's lives, stamped with Mousoulis' own sensitive and stylish signature.
