Naive, but Ultimately Sweet & Satisfying
24 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Engaging performances by a bunch of up and comers elevate this above and beyond what one expects of it. Kind of a cross between a Richard Curtis comedy and an indie adventure, the story takes place in the wilds of London's Blackheath, and represents it fairly. Although it does serves to show an idealised English community - careening dangerously in the direction of twee at times - it does serve to show that there are difficulties in reaching one to one communications these days. It challenges, though in a view askew, the challenges / solutions provided by mediums like the Internet. Though certainly not as gruesomely as Cronenberg's CRASH :) Saw this at Cannes 2005, and the audience seemed as into it as was I. Ultimately, sweet, and involving, and that Susan Benton. What a treat! More please...
