This short movie featuring Yo-Yo Ma is overshadowed by the outstanding performance of Arsinée Khanjian, the wife of director Atom Egoyan. The subtle mixing of Ma's cello suite performances in a limo and in a small audience format was a great vehicle of Egoyan's. Ms. Khanjian's emotions weave their way through the movie, carrying the viewer as if they were on a flowing river. The story was beautifully told and the music of Yo-Yo Ma completes the story with passion, emotion and brilliance. The real surprise was the very downplayed role of Lori Singer as Dr. Angela France. She played her role with a subtle quality of mixing into the movie without using her presence to dominate the scene. Her passion of playing the cello played very well into the story and added a nice dimension to the movie. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
