Pray You Never Have an Anniversary like This One

May I make a suggestion? Don’t watch this if you are either feeling a little squeamish or if it is your wedding anniversary today, particularly the latter.

Itches come in many shapes and forms when it comes to marriage but it’s fairly rare, when it comes to thoughts of separation, for one partner to imagine herself alive and the other dead. However, such is the case with the individuals who make up this couple: after ten years, this lady wants to cut her losses (rather literally, I'm afraid - and take that as a warning), and call time on her marriage – not to mention her husband. 

Written and directed by Jonathan Mills, Anniversary has something of an unexpected twist in its tail and one of the best last lines I have heard for quite a while.

If you enjoyed this, then why not check out another film by Jonathan that we have featured on Kuriositas, A Short Film about Love and Fate and Death.
