NYC under a different light.....great interpretation!!
10 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie at the London Film Festival and walked in, in fairness, without very high expectations....in the end these have turned out to be the best couple of hours i spent in front of a movie screen over the last few years. I very much agree with some of the comments which relate this movie to "taxi driver". As the scenes go by there is a growing sense of willingness to continue to fight and try to achieve a peaceful happiness in a restless society like NYC, where trying to establish yourself starting from the very bottom appears an impossible challenge. The movie with a catching simplicity puts the viewer in front of the other new york.....away from wall street success stories or thrilling NYC crime movies, it shows a different angle of the big apple...the story of those which have the strength to face poverty and loneliness with pride, honesty and great determination. I found amazing how the director has been able to express such density of feelings and meanings of life with almost no words and complex dialogues, but simply through a man pushing a cart and talking through his silence.....a fantastic interpretation!!!
