David Knight - 17th Oct 2017

The third instalment of Cyrus Mirzashafa's trilogy of videos for Two Penny Blue is a satisfying look at the arc of a relationship, from the spark of attraction to painful split, but with more wit and flair than this kind of story usually gets.

Mirzashafa gets up close to his couple with an 80-90's vibe, big hair, colourful clothes and a carefree attitude in TPB's Blondie. It's lighthearted, but you care about them when it all goes wrong - testament to Mirzashafa's editing as well his directing.
