This low-key, no-budget character study may prove too subtle for some audiences, but those with patience may find it a pleasant antidote to the too-obvious romantic comedies of Hollywood proper. A soft-spoken bookworm falls in love with his next-door neighbor, but is too timid to act on his feelings. Instead, he meets a secretive stranger who pushes all his buttons. Unsure of what to do, our protagonist finds himself wedged between two women. The screenplay never says much about anyone or anything, but the largely unknown Asian-American cast makes the most of the powerful emotions that are floating just below the surface. 85 minutes
