Heartbreaking but beautiful
19 June 2004 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

A very interesting "slice of life." This film isn't preachy, but simply shows us life as it is. AMAZING performances - A lot of humour for a film about drugs and prostitution! Reminds us of the little funny things in life :-)

I suspect that Nathaniel Geary will be a new voice in Canadian Cinema. I think some writer directors can have problems as they are better at one thing than the other. Clearly not the case here as we have dialogue that rings so true. I would suspect some improvisation as some of the dialogue is almost too natural!

Excellent.
