A Thousand Empty Glasses

A Thousand Empty Glasses, dir. Andrew Nolan, 2012, UK, 15 min.
part of “Kissing Me Softly” (shorts program)

Charlie (Tristan Shepherd)
Some time in the 1930’s, young Charlie goes on a whirlwind trip to a small town in France, largely to tell his friend Arthur that he is engaged to be married. He meets Arthur’s neighbors Oliver and Martha, also English expats, but one night an overabundance of wine allows Charlie to see some of the truth behind the veneer of happy heterosexuality. It’s beautifully filmed, but an unhappy story with some violent scenes. Recommended.
