Very polished movie. Enjoyed it. 
really enjoyed it. Top notch acting and able direction. Plus I like the way she reacts when he says he doesn't like movies. I was reacting the same way. Check out "The Varmint Hunter". I think you'll enjoy it.  
very well shot. polished, crisp, and compelling. enjoyed it. :) 
Wow. This is excellent stuff... although I didn't see it tie in with the current theme... who is looking for help in this? but really well made film (is it part of a larger film?) 
(I always push "Post Comments" first! Rats!) Anyway. I love this film - the skill of the players draws me in to see who they are, totally believable, interesting people. What's the film about? I don't know, but I love the land they live in. That's called storytelling. Nice job folks. Keep it up.  
Great cast, great premise, well shot. I really liked the ending sequence too, your two characters are just plain interesting. The only thing that lacks is the clear theme of "help wanted," but I can definitely see how it fits. 
Well of course this one is gonna get my votes! Natalie's in it! A very nice little character-driven vignette to be sure. Good natural performances and low-key but very competant direction! Bravo! 
its highly pro. but wer is help wanted...well u can be a hollywood director for sure..all the best  
Very well directed, the movement, the flow! 
In response to those who feel the theme isn’t represented I’ll only say I’ve worked in both a video store and coffee shop, and those are service jobs that most often will have that Help Wanted sign in the window. Beyond that, the writer/co-producer and I, feel like between the Starbucks and the Blockbusters, small business owners (like Cacao and A Video Store Named Desire in Santa Monica, CA where we shot this) are getting shut out. Take it or leave it, but the harsh truth is that American independents need all the help they can get. 
Excellent direction and acting as always. This one has a very good story too. Maxime Pourbaix (The Mojo) 
Great dialogues and actors! Wish the story kept going... really good work. Shortlisted! 
Wow you really blew me away with the quality of the acting and writing. It was shot really nicely too. I look forward to seeing more of your work Good luck!!! 
what was this shot on? looks GORGEOUS! very well acted, good pace, nice background music. probably the most professional movie I've seen in this competition, that's for sure. awesome job. 
I love the simplicity of your film, and the girls are beautyfull. I invite you to watch the animation I did for this competition. "HELP, WANTED DEATH OR ALIVE" i couldnt finishi it for the dateline. Your coments will be my price. check it at my profile 
Nicely paced shot acted. Very solid. Theme's an important one to me. Help wanted is a little fuzzy but close enough. - Alex - Virtual Vikings
