This is an unapologetically gay short film that isn't very gay at all. The story just happens to feature two guys. That's my kind of gay film. Generally the film looks a little like a K-TV drama, and errs on the side of sentimentality. That's not necessarily bad.  There's an immediacy about it that is very engaging.  Two bored cashiers 'banter' under the watchful eye of their boss. But what is this intrigue with postcards?There's a couple of issues with the sound mix, but that's no drama in itself. Look out for some very power cinematography towards the end.

The postcard is about crushes or what we prefer to call Love at First Sight. And rightly so, for it enlivens a boring existence, it fills up moments of emptiness. Two women competing for the same man, yet his eyes weren’t on either of them.I love the silent conveyance of feelings and the slow and scrabbling effort to express emotions. I love the light humor between the girls and the boss as well. I feel that the movie was able to connect with me
