Sleeper? Only if you're sensibilities aren't awake!
24 July 2001 | by (Santa Monica, CA) – See all my reviews

What a treat! This so-called sleeper (only because its low-budget with a cast of unknowns) is an eye-opener. Why can't there be more movies like this one? Original dialogue, fine acting and a moving story of a man having trouble getting his life in focus. The music, nicely distributed, is glorious. My sympathies and interest were fully engaged. There are wonderful contrasts between the sophisticated concert world and the work-a-day demands of a produce company. Questions of satisfying romantic attachments, personal accomplishment, familial relationships are all dealt with...with just the right amount of humor and pathos. Rent this lovely film and give yourself a delightful filmic experience!
