Director John Huddles told Producer Dan Grodnik they shouldn't shoot this movie in March, especially in the hills, because of the severe rains that were forecast. Grodnik said he only had a small window of availability for Minnie Driver and had to schedule this movie for that time. Grodnik went on to tell Huddles not to worry about a little rain. One rainy afternoon Grodnik got a call from his Line Producer saying the weather had become impossible in which to shoot. Grodnik told him to continue anyway. The Line Producer said he would like to, but the grip truck just washed away down a gully. See more »
I rented this film for one main reason, because I am a fan of Rufus Sewell, what I ended up getting out of it is so much more than just a great performance by him, but a very good film. What I admired most about it is the way it was shot, it has very clever and yet simple camera moves. The plot sways between everyday realism, and the kind of chance some dream of. It was undeniably lovely, a gem. I have never felt that a movie deserved those terms more. It's a pity not that many people will ever get to see it, and even if they did, most wouldn't be able to appreciate it. It is full of easy to understand philosophical ideas and wit. Everything feels balanced out. All in all, I liked it. Go see it, it's worth it.
