Absolutely Wonderful
23 April 2012 | by (Central Florida, United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely loved and enjoyed this movie. The film is technically sound, the direction is superb, and it's beautifully shot. Every frame is wonderful to look at. The actors are so believable as their character/s that you almost forget you're not watching a documentary (almost). They're incredibly realistic and communicative with more-than-words - their language, facial expression; the story just lingers in their eyes.

You can't not-watch every second, you want to keep going. Quite honestly, I wanted more at the end - I wanted to explore more, I wanted to know 'what next'. However, I was immensely satisfied and happy with how the film left off - it was a perfect ending without being that 'too perfect' of an ending in the unrealistic sense - it's perfectly satisfying, to where a 'sequel' might ruin the way you feel about the characters and their situation/s.

The story and the characters are easily related to without being stereotypical or cliché. You feel for them, you know them. They're so.. tangible.. by the end of the movie, that you feel like you've known them for ages. The story is wonderfully told, from all sides, and unbiasedly so. The visuals flow so nicely, the soundtrack is a great flow as well - they pair up so naturally you almost feel like it they were built around/for each other.

I had not one complaint about this movie. After the screening and Q&A at the Florida Film Festival, I was able to speak to others in attendance, and I wasn't able to gather one complaint from any of them, either. This is an excellent film, certainly worth the watch, if only to see that there will be more from this cast and crew.
