Innovative cinematography, fascinating story
12 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The director seems to have a knack for finding the human element in any story, including one like this which so easily could have slipped into the conventional genre stereotypes. But Chris Harris deftly puts the focus on the human element and together with some great actors, gives us a compelling plot but more importantly, the people and emotions behind that plot. One of the ways he does this is through the innovative cinematography which in a Bergman-esquire way, although thoroughly modernized, keeps our focus on the faces and expressions of the main actors. If he carries this philosophy on to his next film, I think Mr. Harris's next effort will be well worth watching for.
