Trivia

Barker shot the film in NY City with a tiny crew of seven people over the period of a full year, through all four seasons. He and his staff had first interviewed nearly a thousand candidates for the leads, picked four after an arduous process, then edited the transcripts of their video interviews, and shot the final film on film carefully directing them in the new truthful, but more dramatic script.

User Reviews

Very interesting, entertaining, true movie!
4 October 1999 | by OresteSee all my reviews

I really liked this movie. Unlike some other viewers, I thought that it was very true movie. It sure shows the reality of lonesome hearts and of celibacy. The actors are very comfortable with the camera and very natural, which is very refreshing.

This movie talks about a very sad, depressing topic on a light mood, which brings a nice contrast. The images are beautiful and the scenes of the city, all those people behind windows, just as if we were voyeur is really fascinating. Just in the same mood than _Dreaming with the fishes_ or _Happiness_: good american cinema (please, not hollywoodian!)
