A good movie about a very important issue
18 June 2007 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

Quite a good movie about a very important issue: Fathers' custody rights. I'm very happy to see that some care enough to make such a passionate movie about it. I don't know if the DV format was an aesthetic or economical choice but that was my main beef with the movie. I know it kind of enhanced the cold atmosphere but that's one rule I'm adamant about. DV for home video, 35mm for theater, that's it, that's all. Other than that, I loved the characters and the complexity of their actions. The sex scenes were some of the most intense ones I have ever seen. You can almost touch all the love, hate and despair in the couple.
