GREAT TOUCHING STORY OF THE HUMAN CONDITION
20 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

I read all the negative reviews, and really, they should go make their own movie before trashing this one. I loved it... it was very touching and sensual.. and NOTHING trite about the plot.... in fact, I found it very original. This movie explores the human condition.. it shows us that all of us, from the destitute hustler to the respected cop, are facing weakness of our own. To love someone is to understand him/her, and to trust people and give them the benefit of the doubt. IF you want a perfect movie, dont' watch this.. but if you want a touching piece of film treasure, you must buy this title on DVD.
