A beautiful movie that never saw the light of day..
5 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film when i was 15 years old at the Sundance Film Festival. It has haunted me since. Especially because it has never received an official release, at least here in this country, to my knowledge. It is, well, as i remember it, a very beautiful and lyrical meditation into the trauma that can befall a family when it's spiritual anchor is torn away from it's foundation. Stephen Dorff and Geneivive Bujold give fantastic performances as a son and mother whose grasp on reality as we know it is being stripped away piece by agonizing piece. This film shares the same type of foreboding atmosphere as 'Donnie Darko' and 'Seven'. I think maybe it was a bit too ahead of it's time to pick up a distributor at Sundance at that time. I hope to see this movie again soon..
