This is the newest, most dramatic and most thought-provoking cinematic thriller from Jorge Ameer, director of The Singing Forest. This intensely emotional supernatural tale revolves around Adam, a congenial recluse living quietly in a small town, who is brutally murdered by a trio of religious fanatics. His lover, a closeted police detective, is forced to live with the guilt and sorrow of having kept his now-deceased lover isolated and hidden from view within their cozy but isolated cabin.  Concerned about the reaction of his colleagues within the police force, he keeps his lifestyle a secret, suppressing any real insights into his inner core. One day, ironically, he becomes the victim of his own double-sided values. The results evolve into a tragic and traumatic ordeal for Anthony as he's forced, as part of a murder that he's charged with unraveling, to unearth the bodily remains of the victim (his former lover) as the first step in solving the mystery.  Things turn scary when Adam's...

Helen: So, what's next?
Mark: We'll wait and see.
Helen: Shouldn't we offer him something?
Mark: Helen, we don't know the guy. Who's to tell he's some fugitive or worst... a child molester, or serial killer.
Helen: Mark... he's not a fugitive. I did see great sadness in his eyes. I think there is a lot more to him.
Mark: Of course, we hardly know the guy remember?

very enjoyable/entertaining
28 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

I hardly ever post comments on this site but after watching this film at Reelpride and attending a very intense q & a this past Saturday, I thought I'd add my comments. I stayed after the Q and A and spoke to the director at the after party. Many who stayed, those who might have had a problem with the film, made their voices heard. However, I noticed when I approached the director several people who were at the Q & A told him how much they enjoyed it. I noticed those same people didn't say much during the Q & A. From what I understood, the film was projected on video because its still a work in progress. I can't wait to see the finished film projected on film. I found this film to be very intuitive, original and fun. It is without question dark and disturbing. The acting was very good. I specially liked the editing and cinematography. The sound in the theatre was poor. There were volume distortions with films shown throughout this festival. I applaud the filmmaker for his efforts and for his dark and interesting insight on life. We share the same outlook ;P. I definitely recommend this film.
