This is a winner! The clever screenplay catches you off-guard and hurls you around in such a dizzying spell!  There are smart twists to the often-relatable scenarios of an elder woman with a male prostitute like the sounds the woman made while role-playing having labor pains and coupled with the tricky dialogues with double-meanings. But viewers will never really guess the big reveal until it happens and boom! You can't help but utter a  very loud chuckle!  Needless to say, this is a very enlightening and learning experience for the male prostitute and for the middle-aged mother a "release" of her pent-up insecurities and negative emotions. Brilliant and with intense acting portrayals!!

All she wanted was to hear him say “I love you Mother” and she’d project an orgasm-like facial reaction, bring out the money from her purse and leave by the door, looking back exclaiming with beaming eyes“that was wonderful!” She hired a male prostitute not for the physical pleasure but to be re-assured and accepted. And Ringo filled her emptiness with his patience and hunger, and since he too had some mother-hangups, he found it easy to commiserate with his client. I love everything about this film, from the characters to sound and cinematography, a must see shortie.

I loved how the plot twist is very unexpected. This film is a story of a lonely, middle-aged woman who books a gigolo to visit her in a hotel room but things didn't turn out the way it's supposed to be. This is very enjoyable to watch despite being dependent on only two actors and one film location. Great performance even being on a tight room. I would also like to commend the actors in giving color to the whole film.
