Well crafted and under appreciated
19 September 2007 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is not groundbreaking in its storyline, characters, or visual effects. That being said, it is something completely fresh and well made. Mise-en-scene is often thought of as merely props, setting, and costumes, but this film adds an aspect that this film fan has never seen. Using a lack of acting experience to add more to the Miss-en-scene, blends beautifully with the storyline. One of the young stars is actually a refugee like her character and she has never been in film before. The awkward but stunning performance adds a feeling of authenticity seldom reach in mainstream films. Her dialog is delivered in a way you would expect from someone in a new country that is frightened and alone but this is done without effort or training and presents itself as authentic by truth instead of by acting skill.

Adding a final layer to the story is the poor video quality produced by the DV CAM which highlights the conditions we expect those coming from poverty to appreciate even though they are much like their previous accommodations.

This film educates and reminds people that to achieve diversity a struggle on the part of the new arrival is large and cannot always be accomplished because of cultural difference and barriers that we locals do not consider.

This film is well made with and interesting story and should be viewed with an open mind and not merely considered for its clichéd story and characters. They will surprise you in their uniqueness.
