Trivia

The film originally premiered in the US at the Sundance Film Festival on January 19, 2004. However, because of distribution problems, the film took a long five years to hit the US market (in which it was released internationally on DVD from 2005-2007), finally arriving on DVD in March 2009.

Pointless
21 October 2012 | by (Aveiro, Portugal) – See all my reviews

Still can not believe I managed to see this movie without falling asleep. I think it was because it contained some traditional Portuguese music, which gives it an exotic and unusual touch. At the beginning of the movie I thought that Laurie Anderson would have anything to do with it, the music of Mark De Gli Antoni and some of the text recalls her albums! I noticed that the Art Direction is made by someone with a Portuguese name which may explain the presence of "fado" (the traditional Portuguese music). Julianne Moore and Matthew Broderick give their best in these crazy, unusual and pointless roles in a movie full of pointless and pretentious scenes and narrative solutions. I imagine the authors with a glass in their hands at any party full of New York intellectuals saying that the public is ignorant and does not understand a work of art like this... Who knows?
