Three of 8 million stories
1 March 2002 | by (Bad Aibling, Germany) – See all my reviews

Three NYC stories at a climax. Stories about breaking up, losing, leaving, giving away... the things or people you love, you live with, you depend on, which formed your past... The stories are about how difficult this is, how terrifying and how frightening. Yet, you HAVE to do what you have to do. The three girls are met at the turning point of their lives.

The film is wonderful written, with few words and a great, exciting pace (though it takes its time and lot of it). Stop: there may be a lot of words, sometimes, but what's important is between-the-lines. The performances are marvellous. I've rarely seen better ones EVER.

Style and location (all shot "on location") remind me of this specific independent NYC style of Jarmusch, Poe, Seidelman, Silver, the style that made me love movies again, while Hollywood screws it up.

Forget those other NEW YORK STORIES (1989). They do not matter anything. Just selling out big names to make money.
