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.
