Gripping Snapshot of Life Troubles
12 April 2011 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

This is a nicely woven short tale which highlights the intersection of typical and atypical events in various peoples lives which come across as matter of fact, but which are deeply troubling. It's the type of story that makes you say to yourself, "I don't have it that bad, but I could." I enjoy movies best when there is a compelling story, believable acting, and complimentary score/soundtrack. In this film, all are assembled perfectly, indicating solid directing. I particularly enjoyed the performances of the mother and ex-girlfriend of the central character.

There are quite a few melancholy moments in this picture, and the melancholy soundtrack really accentuates the feeling.

Smooth scene transitions and camera work give the film a very professional "higher budget" look.
