Inspirational story needed today
19 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'The Usual' is a film worth many more words than the film has on screen. And it is quite timely in today's world were equality and inequality have blurred lines and sharing and caring is something that is often forgotten. The performances, the cinematography and the story are superb allowing the film to breathe and slowly envelope the viewer into a world of passion and compassion. The directorial guidance is felt in the minute details visible on screen, but at the same time the film has its freedom to touch each individual viewer. Maitre' D is my favorite character because he represents the full storyline in his subdued performance - he is the backbone of the times, flexible at times and inflexible in others. Look out for me from this team!
