So Very good.
18 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had little to no expectations of this film and knew absolutely nothing about it. I was flabbergasted. It is really an excellent film. It made me cry but in a really good way. It is just very beautiful and moving. It makes you want to believe in something. I saw his other film, If Lucy Fell, and it meant nothing to me, I forgot about it after watching it. But this one is a total gem. I almost feel like it's my special little secret. But I want to share it with everyone because it really made me happy. That's just what it does. It makes you smile and it makes you feel something for the characters (the acting is fantastic). I acquired several crushes by the end of the film. Please, go to your local independent video retailer and rent it (or better yet buy it) right now.
