A very enjoyable film with strong characters and strong cinematic qualities.
One area where 2wks, 1yr really hit a high note was in its casting. The parts of Julie and Kevin were well cast ... the part of Julie particularly so.
The set dressing of Kevin's apartment really struck a cord with me. It really made me think bachelor pad and tied in well with the characters personality. It almost struck me as an apartment waiting to be filled up, much as Kevin was waiting for emotional fulfillment.
I really liked the character of Julie's mom. I'm not sure why, because she seemed like a pretty mean mom. But I felt Julie's loss when the mom died because I felt emotionally attached to the character. Julie's mom could have easily replaced Julie's friend in just about any scene the friend was in (which was two, I think).
Julie's name - what a great story. What a terrible story! But very creative and about the last thing I would have ever thought of. I felt that was, emotionally, one of the high points of the film.
"Do you remember us the way I do?" Great question!
The time lapse shot of bourbon street at the end was really very good and brought a strong closing to the film. I particularly liked the guy with the rake who was watching our couple walk down the road. I found myself wondering if this was an actual person who just happenned to be there or someone that the director had cast (or asked) to do specifcally that.
