BIG CHILL with brains.
24 February 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The old formula of long lost friends who rekindle their past with a reunion has been done to death in THE BIG CHILL, PETE'S FRIENDS and the list goes on. In this case it is under the watchful eye of director Eliseo who makes entertaining poetry into an art form! The characters are absolutely adorable, giving their appearances as middle aged, non-glamour and no star names. A simple treat by this new master filmmaker whose other films include, Man Facing South East (1986), Dark Side Of The Heart (1992) and Little Miracles (1997).
