Oversimple movie
6 November 2002 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

I read other user comments and felt like commenting on them. Sure it is a simple movie, but is that everything what a good movie demands. It may have been nicely directed but I failed to notice any brilliance. Sure it was a movie which felt like real life, but honestly there should be something more than small subtle pleasures that one gets in seeing people's gestures, mannerisms...

Anyhow, on the whole the movie lacked strongly in the idea and the story aspect. It failed to give a clear message about the intention of the movie. It was no doubt much better than any commercial venture because of its music, narration and acting. But I would have expected more from such a brilliant director.
