20 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a wonderful film this is! To other reviewers who were less enthusiastic, I can only say: your prince charming is a dead man walking. The camera stays very close to the actors throughout, making the experience uncomfortably claustrophobic, and knowing from the beginning that the characters are under police surveillance heightens the anxiety even more. All the usual cinema verite devices serve perfectly, the performances are utterly convincing, the deluge pitch-perfect, the story is gripping from beginning to end, and unutterably sad--and the lovers are gorgeous. There is nothing pretentious or contrived about this movie. So what more do you want?
