This is one of my favorite, low-budget...
17 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...independent films of all time, and since I'm over 50 and have been seeing independent films since I was a teenager, this is saying something. Like the first reviewer here, I too was touched by the heartfelt but honest nature of the film. And I agree that the rough special effects, which indeed are full of kitsch, only add to the warmth of the film.

Jan Oxenberg's look at her own family and its history climaxes in a revelation that I found to be one of the most moving moments I've ever had in watching a film. Ditto for the scene in the (Midtown?) Tunnel. I've scene this film several times, and its emotionally powerful impact on me is renewed every time.

Bravo, Jan Oxenberg!
