hollywood ending? no..., special effects? no..., perfect performance? no..., just life
28 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

I was a little bit far from praising this movie on the base of people's opinion. Had to go to the cinema and watch it by myself and despite of sitting next to a very special woman i was able to take a lot from this production:). here it is what i mean...

It ain't any of those Hollywood crap, nor u won't find here astonishing fx/play/even plot & surrounding. it's just the longer you watch it, the more you feel the sense of this movie. what is it? maybe parabolised reality ? or maybe it's not parabolised at all - simple, pathetic, dull & dirty, but still worth of cope with it. there's popular way of thinking "you are tough if you can fight the fate", actually the main character shows, the real heroism is to dare & want to live accepting the pain, misfortune & life just as it is.

There is no need to tell you what's the movie about-if you like independent productions, don't afraid to feel, think intensively just go to the cinema, you won't regret.
