Very spiritual movie
27 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A powerful, well-paced guide for living and relationships. Enormous spiritual content permeate life and death and evolution. Mind the gap is a British expression and a spiritual-psychological technique (though this is never mentioned).

There is much silence in the gaps between the lives of the disparate people who evolve throughout the movie. There are relationships full of regret and longing that are transcended by the sheer depth of experience and feeling of the characters.

The theme is relationship between father and son, and the longing and regret that it inevitably produces. The ideal of romantic love is seen through the eyes of people who don't know what they're looking for but who need to find it. A little too much close to most of our own realities, or just enough to identify with nearly everyone in the film.

Some fine performances and directing. A sleeper, which makes one wonder if this is a one shot wonder of if the same crew can do it again.
