Interestingly Shot, Well Acted, Entertaining
9 August 2001 | by (Vancouver, B.C.) – See all my reviews



The highlight of this movie was in the directing. Because it was shot in black and white, it brought a depth to a movie that had little to go on script-wise. What made this movie an 8 in my opinion was the use of music, the use of the black and white, and the girl in the movie, who I found more compelling than the main character. There isn't much to give away, as the story itself holds no baring to the beauty of the movie. Its the silence that tells the story in this flick :)

Sit down in a dark room, and enjoy.
