Beautiful and touching with a sense of humor
6 July 2001 | by (US) – See all my reviews

This film is a good character study with a clever ballet of different personalities clashing and intertwining in a very intriguing and somewhat amusing tale. The use of the location as a silent character in the film is a subtle undercurrent to the story. The visuals are excellent, beautiful and well captured on film. The use of color is seamlessly interwoven with the plot and mood of the film. The whole thing stays with you and grows on you. See it more than once.
