Wonderful!!!!
7 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I came to this film in kind of a background manner. In the iTunes store, I was directed to the soundtrack based on another purchase I'd made. I love a good movie soundtrack, so I sampled the one for this film. The score was so beautiful, I had to know about the movie. I looked into it, bought it and here we are!

I loved this film. Everything about it is sheer perfection. The look of it, if that makes sense, is beautiful. Every sound seems to play a role, from the placing of a chess piece to the sounds of a crying baby in the apartment building hallway. The acting is incredible as well. I loved every performance, but the characters of Howard, Warren, and Karen were particularly terrific. It appeared to be a labor of love on the part of all who participated. The story and the writing were phenomenal. And then there's the score, the masterpiece that led me to this jewel in the first place. If you can see this, you really need to! You won't be sorry!
