A delightful short film, there's a gentle, knowing humour hard at work here, with shades of John Shuttleworth. A simple story, it focuses on Ben - a castrated mongrel in his mid-40s - who's unhappy with his lot. Surprisingly the fact that he can longer procreate is not the problem. He's accepted that and has no worries. It's the ongoing disappointment of his relationship with his owner that bugs him big-time, despite the occasional bit of quality time that they spend together.

Shot on 8mm film, this is a little gem. Enjoy.
