This is quite an impressive second feature from Swedish director/writer Joachim Hedén, especially considering the fact that he's been working on a shoestring budget in the US with a terrific cast of mostly unknown actors. The thing is, it doesn't look like a low budget film... The dialogue is both well-written and insightful, the actors are really good and Hedén shows that he's brave enough to trust the spectators with the capacity of thinking for themselves, something which is both unusual and refreshing. An ensemble drama with more emphasis on ensemble than drama, it still is a genuinely fascinating look into the lives of a handful of individuals living in the San Francisco area, and how they try to cope with matters regarding friendship and love. Since this film unfortunately will not get any widespread distribution, if you ever get the chance to see it - do so!
