a daring and disturbing love story
25 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The two lead actors, David Ilku and Karen Sillas deliver strong and brave performances. This story line examines the darker side of chance romantic encounters. Joe and Maya are two lost souls who hope to find some sense of normal within each other. The writer and director took a big risk with the movie going audience. She has written a male lead character being portrayed so damaged and vulnerable it may make some men uncomfortable. This film has a very European feel to it. No special effects. It is a story about the complexities of the human condition. It had a great supporting cast. I was happy see an American film maker work with such care and thought.
