A slower-paced film that revolves around two families - deals with race, friendship and what is right and wrong.
15 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was an unusual film to see at the festival just because I wasn't used to such a slower paced film.

I think in North America, we're so used to the plot being given to us blatantly that when a film like this comes along, it feels so foreign and so... different.

There are some moments in the film when I wanted the pace to quicken a little bit. It is like others have said a very character-driven movie.

It's not the worse movie I saw at the festival because at least it had a plot and something to say but I wouldn't say it was the best.

The director to me tries to make you fill in the gaps - like a book - rather than having everything said aloud. (There were a lot of silent moments... some of which were painfully long) Nevertheless, I still found it interesting to watch. Whether I would recommend it to someone, well, if you fancy something different from what you're used to North America (a slower-paced film) then go ahead and watch this film.
