odd film, 16 November 2013
Author: artrouble21 from United States

There was no review of this 2011 movie but I took the time to watch it as the story has an interesting premise. Though it is a bit drawn out in it's execution it seems to want to be preachy and make the viewer think about mortality but lacks any real punch due to the pace of it's execution. Whilst the characters and scenario are stereotypical they are well played though the script often lacks any real depth even when it is trying to be dramatic. There are definitely some young actors in this film with a good future ahead of them and this film does no real harm to anyones career. I was a bit worried that it would degenerate into some quasi religious morality play but it seem to be more like a poorly realized contemporary version of Our Town. The "twist" ending seems like an after thought and doesn't really explain anything. But I sat through it and I've seen worse, maybe there is a lesson to be learned if not from the movies premise then from the way it is put together. My one major criticism is the music used throughout the film. Simple background arrangements work here and there but there are a lot of badly written songs that impinge on the dialog and whilst the idea seems to be to amplify the films "meaning" it constantly works against the both the acting and the script often drowning out the actors and distracting the viewer. I just don't see how a filmmaker can ruin perfectly good scenes with an overbearing soundtrack unless he owes the songwriter a big favor or something, he certainly did himself no service at all and came close to wrecking his work completely. This film would have worked much better if there wasn't some chatty song going on in the background, quiet works much better with this sort of dialog. I would have allowed 1 or 2 more stars had the film not used these lame songs. Still it had it's moments and is not a total train wreck.
