Shoes off! portrays a lonely bachelor smitten by a mysterious blond women and her beautiful black boots. In his attempt to meet her, he crashes a housewarming party and finds himself at the centre of an embarrassing faux pas involving a shish-kebob skewer and a wine-stained carpet.

Set to an original operatic score, Shoes off! enters the realm of poignant giddy art, "a world of slightly magic realism where coincidence and fate click their heels and do a syncopated pas-de-deux."
     - Craig MacInnis, The Vancouver Sun

Award(s): Canal+ award for best short film, Cannes Film Festival's International Critics Week 1999
