An innovative and celebratory look at life
28 November 1998 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderfully fresh portrait of a woman handling grief.

There are many themes at work, but it is the sense of people

being true to their intuition and instinct that holds the fabric

together. Using a a variety of locations around the world, the

lead character (played by Lelouch's wife), DV-cams her way from

country to country, using her training as a dancer to truly

great effect. The film is full of invention and surprise,

beautiful camerawork and extraordinarily all-encompassing sound.

A celebration of the game
