Did You Know?

Crew or equipment visible: When Vera goes to the cellar the camera follows her. At one point one door (saloon type) slams onto the camera, showing a bright flash.See more »
Vera:What are you thinking about? You always hated when I asked that question. It's a tricky question you used to say. That it's an illusion to pretend that we can bridge the gap between your thoughts and mine. For you, every person is like a planet and two different planets can never become one...See more »

I love it!, 29 June 2009
Author: lancelot_light from Taiwan

It was like a detour, but eventually it would reach the destination. I like the symbol of the maze which Vera talked about at the beginning of her story: she used up all her luck in the maze and then she began to lose direction in real life. Perhaps for Axl and Vera, the recovery process was a detour—avoiding something (love perhaps? love from a lover and love from a father) and yearning for it at the same time. Then Mike's parachute theory unlocked their dilemma: if you cannot do something, maybe it's because you are not ready for it, or you don't feel like doing it now. The film portrays London subculture through foreigners' perspective, which shows the other sides of this metropolis and makes the story and images real and powerful. The music selection and the images are just awesome, especially the bokeh images.
