Another big reason to see small films
2 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I did not think I would enjoy the film because of its theme, but I found it to be touching and absorbing. It was a film we talked about after it was over.

Transatlantic Coffee is a small film that packs a big punch. While outwardly simplistic, the film addresses deep, hidden emotions in a beautiful way. The casting is superb. The direction is breathtaking. The cinematography is the best I've seen in any indie film. The music is perfect for this film and the art direction could not be better.

Because of the scale of this film, and it's forwardness, and possibly it's braveness, this will surely become a cult classic.
