Good film, seldom seen
14 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film at the San Francisco film festival and immediately started telling people they should see it once it got regular distribution. Alas, I'm not sure it ever did and it hasn't come out on DVD yet. If you like relationship movies that move quickly and take place in beautiful venues, see this movie when you can. The story revolves around intercultural and interracial relationships. I would buy the DVD if/when available. In the meantime, watch for it to appear in your local art house theater.
