A little gem
5 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite films, and it's almost unknown.

It's Raul Julia at his best, and Fred Ward doing an excellent job.

I was surprised when I recognized Daniel Jenkins and remembered his role in "O.C. & Stiggs", another favorite of mine.It's also almost unknown.

Take a look at this one if you have a chance, and have an hour and a half of enjoyment.

It's creative, imaginative, and full of unexpected surprises.

Oddly enough, I think this is a film that is totally without females actresses. Except for Raul's "love of his life".

The scene where Raul changes into his all white attire in order to look his best when he meets his lost love is a cinemagraphic tour-de-force.
