Ace homicide detective Matt, (Christian de la Fuente), leads the state in murder convictions, but his job has a big downside - he spends every day with dead victims and that's pushed him to question his belief in God, family, love. When he meets a beauty, Renee (Izabella Miko), who says she's reincarnated he must confront his beliefs. Through trial and failures, she teaches him to use the power of eternal souls to solve both his professional and personal problems. Written by D. Schoner

As an 'older folk' it was a pleasure to view the April 11th screening of Minimal Knowledge at the Garden State Film Festival. For me action spoke louder than words on the screen. A facial expression, a close-up or long shot, an angle that framed the mood, all giving emphasis to enhance the story. Flashbacks, subtitles, and scenes with an almost black and white look, added to the emotion and gave the film an ease to follow and to stay with. .

I felt the reincarnation angle was treated as an interesting story, rather than an oddity. I was pleased that Izabella Miko's role as a young woman who lived, and was yet to live other lives was acted and directed to be like a 'regular person' rather than making her odd.

I was totally amazed at all the touches that stand out, both verbal and visual and still combine comfortably to create a story.
