Well acted, great score, and superb cinematogrophy make this a must-see, 8 May 2000

Dumbarton Bridge is a lyrical film which deals with many issues of timely relevance. As we commemorate the 25th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam war, many vets continue to deal with painful issues from that era such as substance abuse, reuniting of families created during that conflict and general identity challenges. Koppelman, through his well-casted and superbly scored film, touches on these issues with care, thoughtfulness and an eye and ear for the nuances of delicate human relationships.

The cinematography, while understated, is sensitive and creates the precise mood to accompany this moving first feature for Koppelman. I look forward to more from this filmmaker.
