Como Dos Desconocidos (Like Two Strangers)

Como Dos Desconocidos


Como Dos Desconocidos (Like Two Strangers, in English) is about a guy meeting his ex at the mall. There’s awkwardness, shy smiles, and very few words, but you can tell that there’s still some sparks between these two. Or is there?

Definitely squee-worthy, this short film overall made me gush. It’s definitely just the kind of film to make you feel all warm inside on a day like Valentine’s Day. Or maybe one to make you hate everything and retreat to a corner to cry. It really depends on your relationship status, I suppose. Either way, this is pretty cute.

(This is available on YouTube, with English subtitles available as closed captions. Then again, maybe you’d prefer a love story involving geeks? Or have you been pushed into the horrible place that is the friendzone?)

I'm the webmaster and author at I started this website as a complement to my studies in the Spanish language, but honestly, it just gave me an excuse to watch lots of great short films (like the ones in my author's picks section). I also blog and write short stories.
