When you're in a hurry the unexpected can happen.
15 July 2005 | by jhvogelsangSee all my reviews

Rushing off to meet his girlfriend (Lena Heady) young professional (Martin Freeman) is desperate for transportation - in a city the size of London, at rush hour, it is not so easy. He can't get a cab, runs towards the station realizing time is running out. But he spots a cyclist (Jodhi May) and persuades her to give him a lift on her bike rack.

The thing is it is more than just a quick ride, as he is to find out. Despite the lack of dialogue the actors transcend sound with their looks, emotions and body language - A very cute short film with a longer and louder message.
