Storyline

Judith Nelson quit her medical studies to marry. Years later, her husband, a physician, divorces her to be with another doctor. Deeply frustrated, she now lives alone in her luxury apartment in New York, looking for a new meaning for her life. Pat Francato, the janitor and lift-boy, has a troubled life himself: Gambling debts and the tragic death of his daughter took away all his spirit. One day, he and Judith meet in the right mood and a fragile friendship starts to grow. They can help each other to get on their feet again. But one false move could destroy everything they built so carefully. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Trivia

The news clip that Judith is watching at the beginning shows a badly damaged apartment building, as we hear the newscaster speaking about possible terrorist bombings. This image was actually from an October 1992 airplane crash, where an El Al 747 cargo jet crashed into an Amsterdam apartment complex, killing 43. See more »

An european american film
9 October 1999 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

This American movie had a Europeen feeling for it's creativity, the subject and by the fact that there's a woman starring in it. Do you know many regular Hollywood movie that stars a woman in a very serious way? The feeling shown by Holly Hunter are very feminine. We saw that very often in European films, but not quite much in the USA. Well, everything's away from Hollywood is for me the real American cinema of the 1990's. DeVito is very moving in one of his best role in his career, And Holly Hunter... the GREAT Holly Hunter! She can't be bad!
