A good story, 26 June 2007
Author: efpiel from Sydney, Australia

i watched this at the Sydney film festival and thought the performances were stunning. they do a lot with the little resources available to them. this film reminded me of new-wave french cinema with its existential predominance of the Greek tragedy theme. it was well casted and the subtitles were definitely done well. its a completely underrated film that should have been bigger but its not. perhaps it has been bad marketing? though if you are looking for a city of god type film, look elsewhere. this is independent cinema at its finest. i wonder what film makers such as these would have done with a larger budget!!! Alice is a women tied down with her family but longs for liberation of the boredom and monotony of her life. she wont find it in her taxi driver husband or her apathetic kids who most of the time watch television. yet we see a light and an optimism coming from the grandmother who is going blind, though most of the family ignore her because they are stuck in their own selfish ways.
