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 »

Yeah, 'cause when you sing, it's not about just you. It's not about just NOW... it's about the whoooooole BLACK experience. When black people, I mean African-American people sing sentimental songs, it's not just sentimental, they're not sentimental at all right?

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!
