Elevator Pitch Two parents, a father with his son, and a mother with her daughter argue over a parking space when they arrive at a college open day. While the offspring more or less follow the programme, the parents skive off together and despite their different temperaments, he cautious and conservative, she kooky and out there, they are attracted to each other. How will it all play out?
Content Apart from occasional views of the children’s interaction, maybe only there to fill space, we follow the parents through a variety of scenes and events which include a visit to the bell tower (from which they see a couple having sex in the distance), playing chopsticks in the music room, participating in the theatre course and smoking pot with a couple of students (I did not realise that they had done this).
A View This is the fulfilment of a very thin plot and it took two experienced and charming actors to more of less pull it off. It had a very limited release in America and so did not make its very low cost back. If you decide to watch it you have to pay attention, otherwise you will miss what little it has to offer.
