Waiting for Eve


When the two flatmates, complete opposites, both platonically involved with the presently absent landlady, find themselves in a pandemic lockdown, they have to learn to get along overcoming their differences.

Our Review:

This is such a hilarious short film. Brilliant narrative. Not a clue until the very end. One among the few movies that will tempt you to watch it again and again. The entire dialogue when watched the second time sounded totally different, makes more sense and the real fun just begins. Its better not to give more details and break the suspense. A must watch...Outstanding performance by both the flat mates or...Shhhhh...

Director Statement

I believe that everyone has a story to tell, and I hope that my interpretation would appeal to some viewers. I also think that I am blessed living in Britain which offers amazing opportunities for filmmaking, both in terms of its talent and the beauty and variety of captivating locations.
