Film captures the universal through individual experience
25 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Twelve years ago, my ex-husband died from AIDS-related complications; he left our thirteen year-old daughter alone. He had rather than a new partner - a second wife. But because of my daughter, I was drawn in to care for him for several months before he died. I, like the first wife here, made an active decision to let go of the past.

There were dozens of parallels captured in this remarkably sensitive and astutely filmed memoir that may or may not have been real, but were made possible in my imagination due to the incredible intimacy of the film maker and her subjects.

The reality of the father holding on to his secrets to the end is also familiar, even though he felt so close to his daughter.

All I can say is that the tempo, mood, lighting, sound, choice of footage, subjects and characters, were so right on, so charismatic, and so essential to report in the never-ending struggle of AIDS; as is the story of children of all ages losing parent(s) to a disease often caused by an expression of love.

I would like to see more by this woman.
