Did not sit with me as being a rom-com on the night. But after a good nights sleep and a bit of think....yeah it was. Beautifully shot and bittersweet. Great reveal at the end.

Love this film and its story i felt held alot of the audience including myself. But i didnt feel that it felt like a Romantic Comedy... It had alot of emotion but felt more of a Drama than a romcom... so with that i feel it didnt hold within its genre so i cant rate it super high :) but well job on the film

In my view one of the best films of the heat!
It wasn't a full blown rom-com but it had it's subtle hints at it in various places.
Well executed!

Stunning!
It's hard to believe this was made in just 2 days.
Sure it doesn't have Hugh Grant in it, but the payoff at the end makes the film.
Bald faced cheek have done it again.

was a good story and had lots of potential but did not have any "com" for the "romcom" was more like a drama :(

I loved this film. The emotion at the end did make the film for me. There were comedic moments in this piece despite what people say (the flashbacks) and it definitely had romance. Despite this it still didn't feel exactly like a rom-com. I think maybe because the comedic and romance elements were separate, rather than working off each other. Otherwise, thoroughly enjoyed.

It was beautiful, it touched you in the right way.

So good. Best reveal. Most serious. Best story.

Well thought out story, good level of exposition for a short film, no obvious technical issues. I only wish the comedy element wasn't a flashback to a phone covered in shit.

I thought the film was well made, but as others have mentioned it misses the mark a little bit when it comes to the genre. And story-wise I struggled to really connect to the main character's situation. Perhaps closer, more intimate shots would've helped. As far as the ending goes, I thought it was really unique and impressive, but feel as though with a little bit more tweaking to the script it would've been a bit more deserved and had a deeper impact.
But regardless I think it will still probably show up come finals time, mainly due to the ending.

Although the first time through I couldn't think of much comedy, somebody already summed it up, most likely due to not being as the same time as the romance. None the less the camera angles, script and quality of actors was superb. Would love to see what this team could produce in a week.

The quality of this work really stands out from most other films. Good camera work, nice story. The amount of comedy seems to be a little too low, so it looks more like a drama, but it generally doesn’t hurt the main idea.

All in all, a very good piece.

It's easy enough to make people laugh in 7 minutes or less, as these guys are well renowned for. Not so easy to facilitate tears, as some at the showing experienced at the end of this seven minutes. More 'rom' than 'com' but far too beautiful to ignore.

I liked this film. Some people have commented on it not feeling like a true Rom-Com, but to me it felt like a bittersweet slice of a rom-com. Let down a little by the blonde-haired actress (sorry to be impersonal, but I didn't catch the credits), but ultimately heartwarming, and comedic. Surprising to feel moved by a 48HOURS film!

Im sorry but I have to question the origin of some of these reviews as certain aspects of the film do drop it down a few pegs. Here we have an excellent story, concept, script and ending. Probably 5 stars. But the unconvincing acting (specifically the female characters) lack of chemistry, and most of all misfitting genre truly let in down. Still an excellent effort, - 3rd place is befitting.

What a horrible film, the man died and he never even got to make out with his cute doctor! I particularly enjoyed the scenes in which the man was unfortunately but most comically run into on the street, and the other doctor who enjoyed stealing the possessions of the dead! Good work to everyone!
