A Sexual Farce
13 September 2014 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

A family of three, plus the maid and daughter's boyfriend look pretty normal on the outside. But in actuality, the are all having affairs with each other. The boyfriend is sleeping with the mother and daughter, and the father is sleeping with the maid. Do they all know about each other's affairs?

Short films have little time to grab your attention. And then they have the burden of telling a whole story, leaving you wanting more, without leaving you feeling the film was incomplete. "You Owe me One" nails the short film requirements. Funny, clever, beautifully-shot, and wrapped up in a mere twelve minutes.

Alfonso Cuaron has become well known for his directing, but maybe it is time that his brother Carlos gets equal praise. People ought to see this short film, as well as his feature-length works (such as "Rudo y Cursi").
