Enjoyed it.
6 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the San Jose Film Festival (Cinequest), along with many other short films, both good (by major schools) and bad (by local junior college kids). I felt it was the most mature of the films shown at the festival. I can well understand why this film was selected to be shown at the Venice International Film Festival. It is a professionally made film, with muscular production values. The actors are just top, no question about it. It mixes humor (in the classroom) with serious medical problems (narcolepsy) with even more serious psychological problems (the pyromaniac) and a deep look into existential values (there is no god, so each person is responsible for making their own values). It deserves a ten rating.
