I found this spare story moving and clever.
26 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this spare story moving and clever. The cinematography was first rate.I get that this film won't be for everyone-its just so quiet and understated- But if you like this kind of visual storytelling, its a real treat. It reminds me a lot of old silent movies minus the melodrama. Here we have no dialog but none is needed. We're just flies on the wall observing these sad psychiatric patients as they go about their business or lack there of. But there is a story here and it plays out beautifully and with humor. And I found the acoustic soundtrack lovely and fitting. Oh, and FYI, these lead actors can be found regularly on the Broadway stage.
