Flirt is a simple story of love and loss told three times in three different cities. The first story is set in New York. The subsequent two - set in Berlin and Tokyo - seemingly use the same situations and dialogue, but by subtle shifts of emphasis the film evolves from the turbulence of America to the benign calm of Japan. The crisis in each story is precipitated by the indecisiveness of the main character; his or her need for reassurance that their love will hold steadfast - that there is a future for their love - leads them to flirt with disaster. This volume also contains an extended prose piece in which Hal Hartley discusses his work

7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six previously unreleased short films and videos. From the quiet and thoughtful to the loud and ridiculous, this arresting collection of short work by Hal Hartley reveals the tireless experimentation, curiosity, and playfulness that lies behind his many feature films. Writer/director Hal Hartley cites his shorter artistic works as being integral to his creative process. Ranging from 7 to 27 minutes in length, the film and video pieces here include everything from a mini-opera to part-dance/part-illustrated meditations on themes of love, competition, war, and erotic longing. Opera no. 1: Parker Posey and Adrienne Shelly, as roller blading angels, try to fix up a couple. The other also: Two people, out of focus stand in a room while music and sound effects are heard on the soundtrack. The new math: A wordless short with three people fighting over a math problem in a classroom. NYC3/94: Video of three people on the streets of NY. The Sisters of Mercy: Parker Posey and Sabrina Lloyd in an apartment, speaking typical Hartley dialogue in an apparently unedited video. Hartley is heard in the background, running lines with the actresses, trying to set up shots in interesting ways. Kimono: A bride jumps out of a car in her wedding dress. She runs through the woods, losing her dress in the process. She winds up at a cabin in the wood where she finds a kimono
