ambitious
4 October 2000 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film has an ambitious agenda. I don't know what it is. But you can feel it.

There are luscious sceneries sometimes because of it bareness alone. The way the characters interact have a certain quality which seems both surreal and too real.

It is a good little film that should not be taken lightly.
