beautifully directed, focused emotional grindstone
27 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This very independent film is one I loved from the first minute. The main character is a middle-aged photo-journalist who returns from Central America to find his roommates/lovers gone, and is about the process of grieving and healing losses, and the difficulty of being professionally successful while your personal life is falling apart. I call this a French Canadian art film; it is ballet-like in its grace and balance, all aspects of the film work together well, and the intelligence of the script and acting never preaches or forces itself on the viewer. For some, this movie will be an emotional cleanser. Powerful. Note: film is black and white. With excellent original music and selections of Vivaldi Stabat Mater sung by James Bowman.
