Interesting
1 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the 2006 Palm Springs International Film Festival and of the 35 films I saw there this made my top 10. I liked the look and feel and style of this movie. There were elements that seemed a little far-fetched or implausible but the movie overall is very good. The unlikely relationship between Irene and Benny which would seem to fall in that implausible category actually becomes some great on-screen chemistry. I liked the use of double in this film. Two aunts, two men she meets a priest and a beggar, Irene's internal conflict and her two worlds, her two houses, her two hearts. This is a very good film and to keep with the double symbolism theme I really should see it twice. I recommend it and give it a 8.0 on a scale of 10.
