Quotes

Henry Welles: You think I'd be willing to spend the rest of my life in jail because of an accident? Don't give me that much credit, I'm not that big of a man. I came back because of you, I came back because I knew if I didn't stand in front of you and apologize I wouldn't ever be able to live with myself. Now I don't know if that's conscience or love, but I do know that I'm not going to jail for my conscience. I'm going to jail for you.
Nathalie: That's not what I want. I don't want that.
Henry Welles: I know, but... it's the only ...

Underrated
2 September 2015 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure how this film snuck past me until now. It's an absolute masterpiece.

Isabelle Blais' performance is amazing. My heart was breaking watching her, she was so good. I really felt her pain. I really wanted to hate Braff's character, he's not necessarily the most stellar human being – but he's oddly likable.

I loved the quietness of the film. Its character driven, and reminded me of the Hal Hartley films I loved when I was younger.

I'll be looking out for Deborah Chow's next offering. This has gone into my favourite all-time films.
