Drawn into the movie for the sheer enjoyment of watching Sharif - I became immediately swept up in it. Viewers are coaxed gently into the storyline, and it succeeds in drawing you in as you yearn for more. There is a subtle quality of this film that resonates. What is not said with dialog becomes even more important than the actual conversations. We long to know what is behind those eyes, both of theirs - the hurt, the desire, the fear. The film works, in stumbling ways at times, but overall it is memorable, thought provoking and well done. I absolutely loved it, flaws and all. Sharif was well cast, his performance was brilliantly restrained, he held back and became a very believable character. His eyes are so amazing, and so important to see the heart of this character. Aimee is of course lovely, and her Carla is a tortured beautiful soul. I felt both actors were well matched and their seemingly awkward tendencies together made them all the more real. I look forward to watching it again to uncover more of it's intricate layers. Bravo!
