A gem
17 February 2003 | by lbkSee all my reviews

A exceptionally fine balance between harsh reality and comic book magic. Excellent performances that really makes you feel what goes on inside the mind of the characters. No "cartoon" characters in this cartoon world but a believable mix of identifiable strengths and weaknesses in every person. All are crazy one way or the other but their heart wrenching emotions are totally yours. No sobby goo here - Spielberg, look, listen and learn!
