Amazing film-making.
23 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen this film at the Cannes film market. There were a ton of trivial films presented at the market with the same story in almost every other picture, but this independent film stood out. It's been shot, I'd say, as a classic, slowly, carefully, beautifully. Tara Fitzgerald is great in this film, powerful performance. The lead actor has no dialog whatsoever, however he delivers a powerful and convincing performance. Cinematography is breathtaking. I was mesmerized by this film and wasn't able to watch anymore films in that day. This little picture is a classic, unfortunately I couldn't find it in the video stores and too bad it didn't get a wide release in the US. I'll give it 9 out of 10. Thanks.
