    I loved this one... maybe they thought the setting might put filmmakers off as its a culture that's been convincingly portrayed so often, it's hard to fake on film (provided it wouldn't be made by Italian Americans).

    Lovely ending too. I wonder if a British version would have fared differently (or worked so well). Well done.

    That started out sad and went to sweet. I wonder why it didn't make the long list. I really liked how she sent the taxi away for an extra hour with her grandmother.

    Gosh, I think it's lovely. I didn't quite follow the jump cuts, though. Perhaps one moment of tenderness or sentimentality may have served you better here, as the unforgiving 2 pages have made your script seem a little bit disjointed to me. But I really love the understated tone, and it hasn't come across cheesy, which it easily could have.
