Twenty complete strangers meet and kiss for the first time: watch what happened!

Late last night, filmmaker Tatia Pilieva released her short film entitled First Kiss. It is a project with a simple premise: she invites total strangers into her studio and simply asks them, in their own time, to kiss each other. Beautifully shot, the result is a perfect combination of awkward and heart-warming.

Not all the strangers are well matched and not all of them seem to be enjoying it. But that just serves to enhance the couples that clearly are. Some might think this is cheesy, and perhaps the song choice is, but it’s also utterly honest. And totally captivating.
