Storyline

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

I highly recommend this film.
25 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I recently saw Minimal Knowledge at SEDONA. The film portrayed Reincarnation, Religion, Action, Love, and Mystery. The editing was solid, the acting was a lot better than I expected, and the screenplay itself was both original and intriguing. If this was done on a higher budget, I could definitely see this premise doing very well. The characters were well-developed and kept us guessing. The filmmakers obviously have some talent taking a script that should be done on a very high-budget and doing it for practically potatoes. And better yet, they pulled it off. I do these festivals quite often and it was finally nice to see something worth while. I highly recommend watching for these filmmakers in the future.
