Academic movie
23 January 2011 | by (Strasbourg) – See all my reviews

I just saw that movie at Tiff bell box , it was on the Canada top ten list of this year. This is the first movie of Deborah Show.Pretty amazing cast. The title contrary of what some people thought is really boring it says everything: you are going to see a drama, you are going to experience what life is dealing with.

The story makes us remember of 21 grams without a so specific direction. I would say, its a good movie but nothing in ordinary about it even though the main idea was unique ( I personally never heard about it ), it seems that Deborah didn't show anything specific about her way to direct, but she's maybe too young for that..

Lots of cliché , the direction don't give us any chance to be surprise, in contrary it's pretty sad how much everything we expect to happen, happens.. I was pretty disappointed about some scene which were too neutral, without any emotion contrary of what we could expected.
