new director with talent
29 June 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This film Directed by Myra Paci is a moving drama. The director's talent of developing the characters is a key factor in taking the audience into the inner life of the lead character. Great work for a new director- hope to see more from her in the future.
