A romanticcomedic imperfect film about unlikely partners in NYC. Great reminiscent city location shots., 21 August 2001
Author: jakagmom from New York, NY

If you want to see poetry in motion, STUDY the sequences of Michael Marogtta and his pigeon. An UNFORGETTABLE piece of filmography is about an hour into the film--it lasts under a minute...not a word is spoken...only the music which gives the film its name is heard while Margotta, Frances Fisher and a trained New York City pigeon struggle, dance and eventually part under magic hour light; in front of The Pierre Hotel on 5th Avenue. Breath-taking.
